Vic Vanik

Vic Vanik, owner, heads up our staff at Four Seasons and has over 47 years experience in the horticulture industry and has owned his own operation for 41 of those years. Previously a grower in Lancaster, PA, he has grown plants for Longwood Gardens, Disney World, and shipped plants all over the world from Alaska to Israel. Although his first love is the greenhouse, you’ll find him in every department at Four Seasons. Look him up the next time you have a question- so far we haven’t found one he can’t answer!

Gail Vanik

Gail Vanik began her career in garden centers 41 years ago. Now she does a little bit of everything, from helping on the transplant line in the spring, to doing the marketing and advertising, to buying for the store, to setting up the Christmas Shop, to trying to manage our wild and crazy staff. Look for her in the greenhouse, at the registers or helping with customer care. She’s the voice behind our radio ads and has her own blog, “Gail in the Garden.”

Suzan Clifford has been a delightful addition to Four Seasons. A native of New Mexico, a career in the military and then in the greenhouse/garden center business has taken her all over the United States. She currently lives on one of the most beautiful ranches in our area. You’ll find her in the Perennial House and also helping out in the Nursery or sometimes at the registers.

He’s now taken on the challenge of the nursery at Four Seasons and we have been so impressed with this young man. He and his wife, Jackie, have a three year old named Sebastian who keeps them hopping! Stop by and welcome him the next time you’re in the store!

Beth Wetherill

Beth Wetherill

 Beth Wetherill is the new face at our cash registers last year. She has lived all over the country and has finally settled in the Four Corners area. Her love of gardening and playing in the dirt led her to join our team. She’s always smiling and we love that about her! Please say hi and make her feel welcome the next time you check out.

Robin Wolcott

Robin Wolcott comes to us after a long career in teaching. We figured if she could handle the kids, then she could certainly our wild and crazy plants! She’s been a bright addition to our staff and we’re happy to have her! You’ll find her in the greenhouse, helping with sunflower greens, helping with the Winter Market, or at the registers. She lives in Mancos on a ranch which she works with her son and his wife.

Taylor Bangs

 Taylor Bangs started helping out part time and since his graduation has come on board in the greenhouses and helping with the food production. He’s a great asset to our team, always cheerful and helpful. Since he also helps with carry out duties, you’ll often see him at many places on the property.
 

Laura Bangs

 Laura Bangs loves animals of every kind and her pets include sugar gliders, hedgehogs and more. If it’s got fins, feathers, or fur, it’s just right for Laura! She helps out in the greenhouses and works with her mom and brothers in the sunflower greens area, along with helping out in the greenhouses.

Brandon Bangs

Brandon Bangs is the youngest member of the Bangs family and is a real asset to our crew. He helps out in the sunflower greens production, in the greenhouses, in the transplant department and also works as a carry out. He is an extremely talented leather worker, and loves animals almost as much as his sister Laura!

Christopher Vanik

You might remember him as the cute kid who ran a hot dog and lemonade stand, but Christopher Vanik has been in the greenhouse practically since he was born. Well, at least since he was 48 hours old! He’s off and settled in a new job now but occasionally comes back to help Mom and Dad.
