Margie Jenkins was a long-time member of the IPPS-SRNA - who started her nursery/green industry career later in life. She became a mentor for everyone and was deeply passionate about plants. Under her leadership, the Jenkins Farm and Nursery enlarged and prospered, and “Ms. Margie” became recognized as a botanical authority across the Gulf States. She was a frequent guest speaker and lecturer at nursery and botanical organizations. She received awards from many nursery associations and was the first woman to be inducted into Louisiana's Department of Agriculture Hall of Distinction. Ms. Margie was passionate about mentoring – and introducing new plants to the green industry. She exemplified the IPPS motto: “To Seek and Share”.
