The Flamingo Flyer April 2017

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!

Special thanks to Jaime for sending me so many great pictures, to Chris and Dylan for letting us take pictures of them in those yellow spray suits and to Tracy for sharing the yellow spray suit pictures!

Keep sending Kayla pictures so we can see all of our projects as they're built!

Another Jennifer?!

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?

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!)

New Certifications

Administrative Professionals Day

April 26th was Administrative Professionals Day so we gave our Administrative Staff a little love to show them just how much we appreciate them!
