There are many facets of production in a greenhouse. Karin Egdorf, who has worked for Glacial Ridge Growers for eight years knows all the odd and intricate things that need to get done.
Whether it is keeping tabs on all of the native seedling plugs throughout the summer, transplanting the really odd and interesting things, or swinging a hammer to construct needed improvements, Karin is our ‘master of eclecticism.’ She loves the greenhouse and revels in the new and interesting, putting a “green” touch on those native ginseng seeds to get them to germinate, and rooting those special cuttings to produce some very unique plants.
Of course, Karin is a gardener, having a special love for delphiniums. She even likens herself to the native Spotted Beebalm which just keeps on blooming in a very unique and wonderful way.
Karin is another one of our employees, inspiring hope and optimism each day, helping to string us all together into a plant team.
