In this episode of More than Money, we hear from professionals that have made the transition from employee to owner. Among others, we will talk with horticulturist Carolyn Edsell-Vetter, who will share her story of how she helped A Yard and A Half transition to an employee-owned cooperative. Now, she focuses on the business operations at her company and also loves to work with team members to develop both their horticultural skills and their “soft skills” for career advancement. She wants to help each team member reach the next level of their journey with A Yard & A Half.
An inspiring story, A Yard and A Half’s mission echoes Edsel-Vetter and her team’s dream: “To design, build, and maintain beautiful and healthy outdoor spaces that enrich the lives of our co-workers, clients, and community.”
