Peter Schipper

Chief of Maintenance

Peter received a bachelor’s in business management from Nyack College.  For fifteen years, Peter co-managed a landscaping company with his brother. In 2017, Peter transitioned to the Restore Native Plants Team where his underlying passion for environmental stewardship truly blossomed.

Peter enjoys the planning and implementation of landscape design with the use of strictly native plants. One of his favorite times of the year is during the Monarch migration when we raise and release adult monarch butterflies. He is also extremely handy when we need help fixing equipment!

Peter’s affable character, level of personal drive, resourcefulness and organizational skills makes him an extremely valued and effective leader. He inspires and gains cooperation allowing the team to experience flow while bringing projects to seemingly effortless completion.

During his free time, Peter’s interests include being with his family and participating in outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming.
