Todd’s green passions have been growing for even longer than the twenty years he’s spent as a member of the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association. He’s nurtured his SMTC horticulture degree with the continued learning and experiences that earned him a Nurseryman of the Year award from his peers. The same joy he feels for the hunting, camping, and fishing trips he takes to explore Maine’s wild places makes him a natural fit for his role in helping to shepherd the growth of Gnome. Todd extends the same warmth he shares with his wife and three children to each of the Gnome coworkers he considers as his “second family.”
Chace’s love of landscaping is one that’s been growing since he dug into his first job at Gnome when he was 17 years old. Since that day, he’s built upon the practical knowledge he earned in the field with college studies in horticulture and the B.S. in business administration he earned with distinction as a summa cum laude grad. His firsthand knowledge of plants, people, and landscaping practices has given him expert operational oversight of Gnome and the staff who partner to fulfill its mission. Chace shares his passion for the great, green world with his son, Freeman, on the small New Gloucester farm they call home.
