In 1989 Yvonne and John purchased a vacant former wheat field on Plaza Way that would become Green Valley Nursery and, eventually, their home. Over the years they planted more than one hundred trees, taking care of the land, managing its resources, and creating a sanctuary for plants, wildlife, and people to enjoy. Today, the site is home to over 200 unique trees and shrubs. Yvonne and John’s stewardship is being passed on to a new generation. Their daughter, Anne, and long-time employee, Naomi, now manage the nursery—and its beautiful grounds—as it moves forward under new stewardship as Green Valley Gardens Nursey and Arboretum. The local community can expect the same quality plants, service, and horticultural advice, with plans for expanding community outreach and horticultural workshops in the works. We thank the community for its years of support and look forward to many years of service to come.
