Working Hard or Hardly Working?
We've been busy all over the Treasure Valley these past few months. Check out these pictures from a few of our jobsites!
Keep sending Kayla pictures so we can see all of our projects as they're built!
And Jennifer makes three! Jennifer Ruth joined the flock this month as the new Retail Nursery Manager. Jennifer has experience in business and sales from her working as a Territory Manager for Aveda and she's a Certified Organic Gardener, Certified Master Gardener and a newly Certified Nursery Professional making her a great addition to our team! When she's not gardening Jennifer loves to cook, knit and go hiking with her dog (a White Scottie dog). She's excited to be working for Franz Witte and is looking forward to learning even more about plants and increasing sales! If you see her around the nursery make sure you ask her about her favorite plants: The Saguaro Cactus, the Orange Globe Mallow and the Bougainvillea. Welcome to the flock Jennifer!
Wildlife at Franz Witte
Lately there's been a lot of wildlife around the office like this Momma Duck her and her little ducklings who've been sleeping in the bushes and playing in the pond.
And this Turkey who we caught wandering around the Nursery. Maybe she was in the market for some new plants?

We're on YouTube!
It's official: we're on YouTube! We'll be uploading new videos soon but in the meantime check out this funny outtake video!
Special thanks to Lilly and Erica for starring in our very first video (and to Seneca for not firing me after I filmed her wearing the Ghostbusters vacuum!)
Jake and Zach are newly Certified Nursery Professionals so if you have any plant questions, you know who to ask! Congrats Jake and Zach!

Children Are Our Flowers
This month we participated in a fundraiser for Lutheran Community Services' school-based prevention programs. We donated 10% of profits for a weekend to the cause, we hosted a fun kids craft in the nursery and we even made the news with Larry Gebert!
