Our Gardener, Marilla Martin has been with us for 14 years. This former school teacher turned Master Gardener is the essence of dedication. She is a kind, hard working, yet unassuming woman with a gentle spirit and a big heart for animals.
Marilla doesn’t like to take much credit for our spectacular gardens. Yet it is because of her unending desire to care for each aspect of the abundant varieties of plant life we have here that our guests enjoy a display of endless color from April through November. Hot or cold temperatures never seem to hinder Marilla from tending to what needs to be done. Her goal is to ensure each variety of plant has the best possible chance to shine in all its glory.
Glen-Ella’s gardens are truly magnificent thanks to Marilla Martin.
