SITE MANAGER FOR THE PEEL MANSION MUSEUM & HERITAGE GARDENS
Zella started working for The Peel Compton Foundation full time as Horticulturist in July 2007. She takes care of the greenhouse, supervises The Peel Mansion Museum & Heritage Gardens crew and supports the Site Manager and the crew at Compton Gardens and Conference Center. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a B.S. in Landscape Horticulture. While she was attending school, she worked for the University of Arkansas maintaining the horticulture gardens. She also did her horticulture internship for The Peel Compton Foundation in the summer of 2003.
Zella became interested in plants when she was a young child and still finds great delight in watching new plants emerge. She hopes to pass some of that interest on to one of her children or to anyone that is interested in learning about plants.
