Goodbye Goldsmith Seeds Children's Center


By TasteyG


In 2008 a company named Syngenta bought Goldsmith Seeds, Inc. the company I worked for. They came to the decision that they were not in the childcare business and so I was recently laid off. I will miss the kids, my co-workers and my walks through their beautifully landscaped gardens. Here are some pictures of the grounds. Enjoy :)

What a wonderful place to have called 'the office!' Hope things look up for you - closed doors often leave open windows.

So lovely Tracy....I ran across the train calendar you sent me. It is tucked into a chest that I left with my oldest daughter. Sorry about your work...the children were very lucky to have had you teach them..and the gardens will be the poorer without you there seeing them and photoraphing them....bless your heart.. ~Cat

So sorry the company made such a sad decision, for you and the children. It looks such a lovely setting. I do hope you find a new opening soon, good luck.
