Iowa Senator Pays Visit to PlantPeddler
On Sept. 2, 2020, Plantpeddler hosted U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) for a greenhouse facility tour and gathering with the staff. With their Trial Gardens as a backdrop, Ernst spent time getting to know the business of Plantpeddler, and more importantly, the greenhouse industry.
Ernst was joined by three Iowa House members: Senator Waylon Brown, Representative Jane Bloomingdale and Representative Michael Bergen.
The venue provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the industry and topics important to the health of horticulture. During the senator’s visit, PlantPeddler’s Mike Gooder, discussed with her the parallels of the greenhouse industry to the confinement livestock industry, which she knows intimately with her background rooted in Iowa agriculture. Ernst left Plantpeddler with a deeper understanding of the important role horticulture plays in the greater community of agriculture.
