Alice, Green House Manager, Rutland
This is my second year here and bounce all around the store, helping to answer questions. I’ve worked with plants my whole life and all across the country. My favorite thing to do in the garden is to have containers to move from place to place for interest when the surrounding plants have stopped blooming. My gardens have been photographed and published in a book by Sydney Eddison. Look for me Sunday through Thursday.
I’m 17 years old and I am a loader at the Rutland location. I go to High School in West Rutland. I love motorcross racing, hunting, and fishing. My favorite thing to plant is vegetables like tomatos, carrots and beans. My grandfather taught me everything I kno wbaout gardening. I have been helping him in his garden every year from the time I could walk, on.
