Margaret Colbert

She is one of the Merritt College Horticulture students who came onboard in the early ‘90’s. Her organizational skills were honed during her previous years as a paralegal. Unlike people whose surface tells the story, Margaret’s sense of humor is deep; often requiring a pause to peel away the layers before the essence of her wit is discovered. An attribute that we value is her ability to “think outside the box”, often pointing out a fundamental flaw in a business practice or marketing plan that we have previously taken for granted. Among the departments that she oversees are Japanese Maples, notecards, books, calendars, and gift items; and she is instrumental in the back-office. Always searching for the right answers when a new garden question comes before her, you can count on Margaret.
