Noooooo! Nancy, don’t leave us!

Okay, so maybe you’re not leaving us for good, but retirement is a big step, and we’re going to miss having you around more often.

We did have fun at your retirement party, though.


Nancy with the young’uns

Nancy has been with us since our inception in 1979 and has been an invaluable part of what goes on here at Moraine Gardens.


Current and former Moraine Gardens employees

She was the driving force behind our robust container gardening operation, making thousands of baskets, helping to give workshops, and providing invaluable advice gained from years of practical gardening experience to our customers.


That’s a big cake, Nancy!

We hope retirement treats you well!
