Ron developed an interest in plants at a young age. A native of Madison, Wisconsin, he worked for Olds Garden Centers (now Jungs Garden Centers) during high school and college.

Ron attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison where he earned a bachelors and master's degree in Horticulture.

He started working for Evergreen as a propagator in 1982, became vice president in 1995 and purchased the nursery in 2001.

Vickey Vanderhoof
