Since 1999, as Director, John has juggled implementing educational programs for schools and adults, developing the gardens and grounds and generally keeping things on track. He is passionate about introducing young people to the world of plants. He has a MS in horticulture, is a registered horticultural therapist and a licensed teacher.
Our ebullient volunteer coordinator, indefatigable Bullington ambassador and general maker of good cheer can be found organizing plant sales and other events, volunteer work days and providing guidance on leadership committees.
Our new addition to the Bullington Garden’s team, head gardener, Kelsey Jarvis, energetically keeps the gardens and grounds looking sharp while pruning, planting & propagating. She graduated from Lees McRae College with a degree in Wildlife Biology. She hopes to inspire our younger visitors to love our natural habitat as much as she does.
