Nursery career honoured
Somerville Nurseries of Everett recently hosted a reception to mark the retirement of seedling grower Carl Mansfield. Mansfield is widely respected as a master seedling production manager; speakers at the event highlighted his success at improving production strategies, and his constant willingness to mentor the next generation. Fred Somerville, left, presented Mansfield with a watch inscribed “Outstanding Achievement Somerville Seedlings.” Dave Harbec will take over seedling production responsibilities at Somerville.
