When owners Kevin and Sherri Kukuchka first met as horticulture students in 1994, the site which is now Creekside Gardens was simply a cornfield…but Kevin had a dream to create a destination. A love and appreciation of plants and nature has always been at the heart of Creekside.
In the beginning, nursery stock was lined out in the field and a retail greenhouse was erected, along with a small shed that housed our cash register, stored tools for landscape installation, and a desk.
For over twenty years, we have constantly been expanding our offerings. Recent additions including our Butterfly House (2010), our Cabin gift shop (2011), and being host for the Tunkhannock Farmers Market in the summer (2017) have given us the opportunity of being a stronger year round destination offering numerous events and workshops…much more than a seasonal plant place.
We have come to the conclusion that just like any garden, Creekside is ever changing and will never be finished…a continuous evolution.
