Early in 2004, we received an application from this quiet, respectful Berkeley High student who turned out to be an excellent worker. After graduation, Marcelles became an integral part of our yard crew, unloading trucks, moving plants, watering, and assisting with carry-outs. Music (gospel), ministry, college courses, and relocation to Southern California took this young man away for a year, but he returned in 2010 and we’re glad he did! Now, he is indispensable as a seasoned nurseryman; one who helps buyer Dorothy process our deliveries of packaged soils, fertilizers, tools, trellises, stakes, hoses and other garden accoutrements. Punctual, with an easy laugh, a musical temperament, and a cheerful demeanor, Marcelles is a joy to work with.
