The Green People - Spring 2015 Schedule - Evergreen

Meet This Month’s Gardening Expert – Karen Gibson

Meet Karen Gibson – Store Manager for Riverport Road location.

I have been employed with Evergreen for 18 years. I grew up in Gate City, VA and was introduced to gardening at a very young age by my Daddy. He and I were like two peas in a pod – we raised families, vegetable gardens and planted lots of flowers. After marrying and nurturing two daughters, I began my career in the floral industry for 12 years before coming to Evergreen in the late 90’s and joining their team in their Floral Department. I continued in that industry creating elaborate weddings, parties, funerals and everyday arrangements for 6 years. During this time my passion for the Garden Center industry grew and I became more familiar with the horticulture industry day by day. I got my feet ‘wet’ by joining the Evergreen family, visiting other garden centers and attending purchasing conventions for products for our stores. In 2003 I joined the management team for our store on Riverport Road in Kingsport, TN. My goal is to introduce as many people to the fine art and love of gardening, because gardening is a way of showing that you believe in a tomorrow.

Meet This Month’s Gardening Expert –   Jon Smith

MEET Jon Smith – Location manager for Moreland Drive location.

I grew up in Bristol, VA and attended John S. Battle High School. My love for horticulture truly began with taking my first high school horticulture class. From there I started working for a Nature’s Finest Garden Center in Bristol, VA until my family and employer convinced me to attend Virgina Tech. After completing my education with a focus in landscape & turf management I have continued to work in the horticulture industry as a grower at Babkok Greenhouses in Maryland.
