Thomsens Garden Center has new owners

by Dennis Dalman

[email protected]

Thomsens Garden Center in Collegeville, northwest of St. Joseph, now has new owners – Steph and Ryan Roder, who live in Buffalo.

Arno Shermock, the owner-operator of Thomsens for the past 15 years, recently sold the business to the Roders. Shermock said he intends to keep working at the greenhouse through the growing season, along with its new owners. Thomsens, which started in the late 1970s, has come to be the largest greenhouse under glass in central Minnesota and attracts customers from a large area.

Bob and Bonnie Thomsen were the founders and owners-operators of the greenhouse for its first decade or so, until they sold the business to Shermock.

During an interview with the Newsleader, the Roders said they decided to buy Thomsens because it’s a perennially successful garden center, adding they plan to keep the same “great” employee team and will offer the center’s

Round Rock residents learn how to grow, donate food at Unity Park Community Garden

Cara Wellner started growing seasonal vegetables in Unity Park Community Garden nearly three years ago to teach her children healthy eating habits.

“I figure if they’re growing the food, they will be more apt to want to eat it,” Wellner said. “That has definitely been the case.”

In addition to learning about gardening and farming, Wellner said the garden presents an opportunity for her children, who are homeschooled, to get outside and give back to the community.

Besides providing rentable garden plots for those without the space at home, the community garden supplies fruits and vegetables to the Hope Alliance and Round Rock Area Serving Center.

Holli Haswell, board president of both Unity Park Community Garden and Neighborhood Harvest Project in Round Rock, said the garden was founded in 2009 by Jeff Ferris of the radio talk show “Gardening Naturally,” although he is no longer affiliated with the project. Before

The country’s first botanical garden, established more than a decade ago for research purposes and preservation of plants, at one of the largest universities in the country, is now in a state of ruin due to inattention and lack of funds.

Back in 2005, the Higher Education Commission (HEC), approved the addition of a botanical garden at the University of Karachi, spread over several acres, at a cost of Rs 30 million.

Two years later, in September of 2007, the project was inaugurated and its initial years were dedicated to preservation of alpine plants, medicinal plants, and halophytes; while a separate section was created for planting fruit bearing trees. Presently, the garden resembles a wild tree forest.

The Express Tribune asked the in-charge, Dr Roohi Bano, about the miserable state of the garden, to which she replied that she had only recently assumed her post but was aware of

Interested in growing your own veggies but lack the necessary outdoor real estate? Or, simply want to skip the soil and sweat? With hydroponic gardening you can grow plants in nothing more than a Keurig-sized pod and a simple solution of water and nutrients, and many of today’s ready-made “smart” kits allow you to do so inside the comfort of your own home.
