This year we are celebrating our 100th anniversary, and Reina dressed up when we told her about it.
The biggest celebration will happen during the spring. Since the nursery was first opened by Kate Sessions there have been many who have walked through our nursery and found just the right plant for their garden. A good many had brought their own children in, who are now bringing their grandchildren in, and taught them the many benefits of gardening. Whether it was done out of a necessity to grow food, to beautify your home, or as exercise we are glad you have chosen us. "Life's a Garden, Dig It!" has been our motto for many years and it really is true. Our newest slogan is Dirt....where it begins. As Fausto tells us without good soil no matter what you plant you will have a harder job getting it to grow.
As part of our celebration we want to hear your story. Please send them to me either via email firstname.lastname@example.org, mail, or drop them by the nursery. If you have photos or other memorabilia please include these. If something you want to share is not able to be copied we will return them after our celebration.
Each month we will select one story to post at the nursery and the winning entry will receive a $50.00 shopping spree, winning story will be selected by our staff and our key affiliates.
Send your story in now, everyone has something memorable to share with others. If Reina could only talk I'm certain she would have a great story to tell about how much she and Socks Love living at Mission Hills Nursery. We never know she just may tell me something I can write about their adventures, stay tuned.
