Our Team



Madelyn Morris
co-founder of Mickelberry Gardens

Madelyn is an herbalist gardener who grew up in Northeast Portland. She pursued higher education at Portland State University for Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science, where she studied botany, social science, and sustainability education. She created all of the formulas for Mickelberry Gardens products, which are based in a garden and kitchen medicine. When she's not attending to the many details of running a small business, she enjoys cooking, practicing yoga, hiking, and spending time with her pets, plants, and husband.

Matt Morris
co-founder of Mickelberry Gardens

Matt Morris is originally from Atlanta, but has been thriving in Portland since 1997. He has been beekeeping organically for 10 years, and his enthusiasm for this work is infectious. Matt’s beekeeping adventures and business savvy have led to this unique business venture. He enjoys gardening, telling jokes, and taking care of his animal friends and awesome wife.



Jaime Darnell
Facilities Coordinator and Kitchen Manager of Mickelberry Gardens

Jaime fell in love with Portland and moved here in 2013. Before becoming intrigued by the medicinal properties of honey and plants, Jaime worked as a chef and kitchen manager. As he and his wife became more engulfed in their community garden plot, growing their own food and herbs, Jaime found himself in search of a workplace and team that would help him expand his knowledge, and allow him to play outside. Jaime loves all the adventures that Mickelberry Gardens has brought his way, and is proud to Bee apart of their sustainable bigger picture! He is a jack of all trades, and his head for organization and processes is a huge asset to the Mickelberry Gardens team
