Our friend and mentor Katherine O'Block is leaving Figaro's this week and we can't thank her enough for her generosity, genuineness, hard work, expertise, and enthusiasm for helping people grow their gardens and their spirits. Katherine joined the Figaro's world almost exactly 6 years ago and has been an essential anchor ever since...we wish her all the love and happiness and success she deserves.
A Farewell Thank You
For the past 6 years I have had the great privilege of working at Figaro's Garden, and for this, I would like to say thank you. Thank you to Glen and Peter for taking a chance on a young urban gardener looking to work with them in their 'Urban Oasis'. Thank you to Faerlyn for being such a solid rock through out the transition of ownership. Thank you to Hartley for seeing the potential in this wonderful little neighborhood garden shop. Thank you to all of my co-workers and fellow plant nerds over the years! It has been such a pleasure to work along side of you rain and shine. And last but not least, a huge thank you goes out to you our customers! Thank you for sharing your love of plants and trusting us to help you with your gardens. You have made Figaro's such a meaningful and rewarding place to work. I love hearing about your gardening ideas both indoors and outdoors. Oh, and Wilbur! Thank you for keeping a watchful eye over the shop and being such a wonderful furry friend.
