The Passion Behind Greenwich Wood Products
Owner Michael Hendershot has long been fascinated with trees, agriculture, woodworking, lumber and how it all works together. From early years of childhood he has been involved in many facets of farm work and maintained that interest through his university years into present day. He has taught classes at local high schools on topics ranging from sustainable food systems to landscape creations. In the mid 2000's he became particularly interested in Western Canada's renewable forestry programs. In doing so, Michael invested his time and energy into learning about the intersection of agriculture, forestry, woodworking and the industrial arts. He gained a more comprehensive understanding of the varied primary resources that trees provide so wonderfully and how they integrate into our daily lives. One of Michael's medium term goals is to start a nursery in which appropriate local species are planted and cared for so that the next generations can enjoy his efforts and work.
