What's been going on since you last heard from us?
We've already started saying goodbye to some Farmily members and I can't believe Labor Day is only 2 weeks away! How did the summer go by so fast? You may have already noticed the crowds dispersing and the island feels a little quieter. We just had our Season Wrap party last week and everyone had a great time in the Garden Center.
We were happy to celebrate the longevity of several staff members:
Devon Francis ~ 5 years
Leah Mojer ~ 5 years (off and on, but a solid 5!)
Laura Steele ~ 10 years
Pete Smith and Hilary Newell ~ 30 years! Pete and Hilary were also celebrating their 32nd wedding anniversary that night. They have seen a lot of changes here at the Farm since Dorothy first recruited them from a Garden Center in MA. I don't know where we'd be without them!
If you are leaving soon, please be sure to schedule an exit interview with Laura! We are so grateful for everyone's hard work and dedication this summer. Please stay in touch and send us updates and pictures from around the world wearing Bartlett's gear!!
