Gary Schwarz Speaks To Hampstead Kiwanis


This past Thursday at a meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Hampstead, Gary Schwarz owner of Pender Pines Nursery was the program speaker. Gary and his wife Sharon who is the firm’s bookkeeper and advisor started Pender Pines Nursery eleven years ago next to the Senior Center on highway 17 in Hampstead. Gary’s imagination and work ethics have created a garden center unequaled in the area. Along with a pond filled with koi surrounded by flowers and plants, there is an arboretum with a pathway through the woods following a bubbling creek with markers identifying an abundance of plant life. The most recent addition is a large nursery building equipped with computerized watering and light systems that create the best flowers year round. Gary, his son and his employers have the nursery knowledge to help customers with their questions and purchases.
