[block_title title=”The Polly’s Planting & Plucking Team” titlepos=”title-box-center” css_animation=”bounce”]We are very fortunate to have attracted, over time, the finest team of people any organization could hope for. Collectively, those who are lovingly referred to as Pluckers, members of the ‘Plucker Palace’, demonstrate their passion for growing and knowing the plants we offer. In addition, they enthusiastically seek any and all ways of carrying out gardening tasks, problem solving and creative design work with a joyful, fun-loving attitude. They make this nursery a wonderful place to work and to visit and extend that experience out and about Northern Michigan. It is our pleasure to work with each and every one of them. With that, we proudly introduce:[/block_title]
From the very beginning! The “Polly” in Polly’s Planting & Plucking, she dreamed of beautiful gardens with the eye of the painter she is. She began this business back in the early ’80’s using her own vehicle and gardening tools. Steadily and energetically she crafted a dynamic company that drew terrific people in for summer jobs creating beautiful gardens all over the North. Polly is the best boss anyone could ever ask for. Upbeat, with a compassionate ear, high energy and yet sensitive to the hopes and dreams of her ‘kids’, she is the original “Mother Plucker!” When she decided to retire and pursue another path in life, she looked within the Plucker family to carry on her legacy. She did so in order to care for her staff and her clients in such a way that no one would be let down. Our hope is that we have accomplished this mission in a way that makes her proud. She is a great mentor and dear friend and truly a class act. Words cannot express the love and admiration we have for you, Polly. We love you for all you have done and for who you are!
