We, at VerdeGo Garden Center and Landscape Design, are saddened by the news that we lost a treasured member of our staff this month.
Longtime employee, Patricia Bronson, formerly Garden Center Manager of the Bunnell location and latterly, the Executive Manager of the St Augustine location, passed away after a short illness.
Patricia became a member of the VerdeGo staff back in 2003, when VerdeGo was a fledgling Garden Center. Her experience, knowledge of Florida Horticulture and dedicated customer service helped VerdeGo evolve into the nationally recognized and respected Garden Center it has become today.
She was a teacher and a mentor to many employees over the years and was always willing to share her knowledge with them. Patricia had an excellent sense of design and always knew what would work for her customers- even if they didn’t!
Speaking on behalf of all the VerdeGo family- Patricia was much more than an employee- she was a co-worker who led by example, a mentor and above all- a friend.
All of us here at VerdeGo share in her family’s loss and grief. She will be missed, but fondly remembered by staff and customers alike. As a tribute to Patricia’s memory, the center garden at the Bunnell location, (which was Patricia’s concept years ago), will be dedicated in her honor as the Patricia Bronson Memorial Garden.
