Mark B. Childs, Owner, 2001-present

Mark is the Managing Partner and owner of Trent Hill Farm & Nursery. Horticulture has long been a passion of his from working in the green industry, and practical experiences with self-taught academics.  Mark attended The George Washington University, and later graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a degree in Environmental Studies. Upon graduation, he immersed himself in the construction industry. He performed all phases of work from electrical to carpentry, and eventually landscaping.  The experience of working outside with a desire for improving the environment peaked his interest in horticulture, and became his primary focus. 

In a short period of time, Mark moved into a partnership after subcontracting for a Maryland based landscape company. Later moving on to owning a landscape company, Exterior Image, Inc., Mark purchased a farm in Lothian, MD in 1999. He developed the nursery from the ground up, which is now well known in the industry as Trent Hill Farm & Nursery.
