Today, Pieter and Betty Jane are enjoying retirement while traveling, still spending time in the garden and in the regular company of their grandchildren. The family business remains close to their heart, but they are content to maintain a supportive role from afar, appearing onsite from time to time to cheer us on, the second generation.
As second generation Meulenbroeks, following the example set by our parents Pieter and Betty Jane, we remain community-minded and committed to our industry.
David is a past president of the board of Rochester Main Street.
Jeffrey is a former president of the NH Plant GrowersAssociation (NHPGA) and serves on the steering committee for Plant Something NH.
Molly also serves on the steering committee for Plant Something NH. She chairs the Rochester Historic District Commission and recently received a Rochester Arts award for her work on behalf of the Commission to save and renovate the Rochester City Hall annex. She serves as a committee volunteer for Rochester Main Street and as a member of the Riverwalk Committee. As a member of the Society of American Florists (SAF), Molly also traveled last year to Washington, DC to meet with lawmakers, as an advocate for the floral industry.
Collaboratively and on behalf of the business, we maintain memberships with the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, Rochester Main Street, the NH Plant Growers Association (NHPGA), the NH Landscape Association, Society of American Florists and The National Association of Landscape Professionals.
It is our pleasure to be an official sponsor of Plant Something NH, a program of NHPGA, with a mission to educate the public about the health, environmental and economic benefits of plants.
We participate in the Rochester Farmer’s Market, the Society of American Florists’ Petal It Forward Day, and Plant Something NH Day.
We enjoy supporting community events such as, Rochester Gay Pride Day, serving as the host location for Rochester Main Street’s Wine in the Garden / Beer in the Woods and Festival of Trees events.
You’ll find us active with our online community on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
We’re proud to consistently employ anywhere from 12 to 24 local people on an annual basis. That range of employees varies with the demand of the seasons, but some are employed full-time and many have been with us since the days of Pieter and Betty Jane. We are grateful for all that each one of them brings to our operation – their conscientiousness is inherent in our brand and most certainly contributes to our success.
The same can be said of our loyal customers, again many whom have been with us for decades. Over the years we’ve been privileged to play a role in the lives of so many, where our flowers and services have served to mark thousands of milestone events.
