Ryan joined Millcreek in spring of 2023 as a seasonal worker where he gained experience in the shipping, production, and propagation departments, as well as out in the nursery. Along with his experience, Ryan plans to graduate from Clark State College with an Associates of Applied Science in the Horticulture Industry in the spring of 2024.
Ryan’s love for plants and all things outdoors started at a young age when he began helping his Mom and Grandma in their flower gardens. From there, passion and knowledge grew. Now, Ryan is an avid gardener and enjoys growing cut flowers, vegetables, annuals, perennials, and helping family and friends in their flower gardens. Ryan is always looking for new plants to grow and new ways to garden. Before joining Millcreek, Ryan also worked for a landscaping company, where he enjoyed designing and maintaining landscapes, developing teamwork skills, and having customer interactions. Ryan brings his years of experience and education in the horticultural industry to the team at Millcreek.
Besides gardening, Ryan’s other hobbies include painting, hiking, designing floral arrangements, plant shopping, and more plant shopping because you can never have too many plants! Someday, Ryan would love to breed cut flowers and develop a new flower hybrid!
