Toby has had a strong interest in Horticulture and gardening since a very early age. Having the opportunity to garden and study native plants at an early age with his father was very instrumental in his career direction. He graduated high school with both a College prep seal and Vocational seal in Agriculture, then attended the University of Georgia and acquired a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture with a major in Landscape and Grounds Management and a minor in Turf-grass Management.
After working at the University of Georgia Golf Course through college, he immediately entered the Retail Garden Center industry after graduation. He worked as an assistant store manager at garden centers in the Atlanta area for about three years, then relocated to the Athens, Georgia area where he became manager of the premier garden center in the area and managed for five years, giving him the opportunity to travel and purchase materials from all across the United States; including the all three Greenleaf Divisions!
Toby has now worked for Greenleaf Nursery since June of 2006. His wife and two sons reside in northeast Georgia. Please feel free to contact him at any time using cell or office lines, fax, text, or e-mail. Cell phone and e-mail are the two fastest ways to catch him. He looks forward to helping you in any way with your plant materials needs!
