Meet This Month’s Gardening Expert – Alan Ward

Alan Ward picMeet Alan Ward – Lawn and Garden Expert for Riverport Road location.

I am proud to be a new member of the Evergreen family. I am a lifelong resident of Kingsport and graduated from Sullivan South High School. My education continued at the University of Tennessee where I earned a degree in Agriculture Business. My Papaw King always had a big garden and this provided my family with the best “fresh from the garden” produce available. From a very young age, I shared his love of gardening. He was always willing to let me experiment with new and different plants each season.

I also spent a huge part of my childhood helping out at Wards Feed Store with my Grandfather Ward. After graduating from college, I went to work in the store full time and managed the business for over 25 years. Our business was based on customer service much like what I have experienced at Evergreen. I have a passion for gardening and landscaping. My goal is to be knowledgeable about the products we sell so that I can provide our customers with common sense answers to their questions. I feel that my being raised on a farm has given me a good work ethic and common sense way of approaching life.

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.
