In 1969 George and DeaAnna Schumacher opened the doors on a small piece of land in what was then the center of downtown Turlock. By the late 70’s as businesses were moving away from the downtown area, they stayed and expanded.
In 1982, as a high school student, I started working for the Schumacher family here at The Greenery. In 1989, after graduating college I returned to help run the business. By 1996 George and I had become partners until his semi retirement in 2014. We continue his vision, to this day, of offering quality plants, friendly and knowledgeable service along with a visually inviting atmosphere in which to spend our days. Even though George is no longer with us, his spirit and keen eye for detail are present every day.
After 50 years our commitment has never changed. Our goal is to provide great plants, exceptional service and a fantastic environment to shop and work in. After all these years in business, I still enjoy my favorite hobby – gardening!
