Have you ever wondered who tends to our landscaping here at Valley Natural Foods? Meet Neil Elliott, our friend, neighbor and landscaper! Having grown up on a farm, Neil has been involved in gardening his whole life – especially vegetable gardening. Now that he lives in a townhouse, he has switched exclusively to gardening annual and perennial plots, and we sure are blessed to have Neil taking care of ours!
In addition to landscaping, Neil tends to the beautiful, nearly 10-foot tall Ficus tree that resides happily in our eat area here at the store. Neil raised this tree for 34 years in his own home, bringing it outside every year when spring began, and taking it back inside when fall arrived. The time finally came when his townhouse could no longer accomodate the tree, so Neil thought our spacious area would be a better fit. Thank you Neil for blessing us!
