COSHOCTON – Diana Swigert has retired from Roscoe Village after 35 years and is heading for greener gardens.

She started working with the Roscoe Village Foundation in 1979 in the Roscoe General Store. She moved on to working in the Alley Shop, ending up in the landscape department. Swigert worked with Mrs. Montgomery learning gardening techniques and Christmas traditions that Mrs. Montgomery loved. Swigert embraced creating and caring for the potted containers and several gardens in Roscoe and passed her passion on to the volunteers who worked with her.

As Roscoe moves forward, the landscape department will continue the gardening practices of Mrs. Montgomery. Christmas traditions will also remain using live greens decorated with plant materials that are grown and dried by the landscape department. The Garden Elves and Christmas Elves have always been an important part of Swigert’s promotion of Roscoe and the landscape department. As she moves on, the landscape department will continue to work with the volunteers.

Become a volunteer and join others in learning hands on gardening techniques and enjoy the fun of decorating for Christmas. Contact Roscoe Village at 622-7644.
