Heartfelt Happy Retirement to Walt Pinder…Big Welcome to Shauna Beaudoin

NATS Nursery would like to congratulate Walt Pinder GRP on his impending retirement. Walt has had a memorable career in the nursery trades spanning over 35 years. Stops included his own landscaping business, horticultural pesticide supply, plant brokering, landscape ornamental plant supply, native plant supply, and lastly LiveRoof® sales. He has contributed tremendously to the British Columbia nursery industry. In 2007, Walt gained acknowledgement from the British Columbia Landscape & Nursery Association (BCLNA) by receiving the “Outstanding Service Award” in recognition of extraordinary effort and lifetime contributions.

“It has been a great career, having met so many friends and acquaintances over the years. I am appreciative of all the people who have shared their knowledge and love of plants with me. The satisfaction of knowing that I have helped make a GREEN difference in the world is very fulfilling.” says Pinder.

It is with mixed emotions that we celebrate Walt’s remarkable career and bid farewell. He plans to spend his retirement pursuing his passion for jewelry-making and teaching at the Maple Ridge Lapidary Club, as well as embracing life to its fullest. It has been an honor to have had Walt as part of our team here at NATS Nursery. We extend our best wishes as he enjoys his retirement.

We would also like to welcome Shauna Beaudoin BA, GRP to the NATS Nursery team. Shauna will be leading the green roof, LiveRoof® and Permaloc® division of our company.
