Patricia Wells, Master Gardener intern living in Grantham, works a permanent part-time garden associate position for Home Depot in Claremont, NH. Her responsibilities cover inside and outside gardening and home products, including soils, seeds, flowers, snow blowers, and power tools. She’s been working there for four years and has completed all the available HD training, including nursery certification. Patricia loves to garden and values being helpful, providing information and educational resources to the public, and supporting customer projects. To that end, she asked for, and was granted, permission by HD to keep her Thursdays free in order to attend a Master Gardener class in Concord this past fall.
