Gardening can be a lifetime hobby or a career. We are fortunate that several of our members throughout the years have been horticultural professionals. We learn from each other and encourage our membership to grow their understanding of our natural world. We support those who are continuing their education, and through 2021 we have awarded more than $50,000 to students pursuing degrees in horticulture or other plant-related fields.
Our club provides two $2,000 scholarships each year to those pursuing education in horticulture, botanically-oriented environmental studies, landscape design, botany, agronomy, botanical sustainability, or other plant-related fields. The scholarship must be used at a two-year, four-year or graduate accredited college, university or vocational school and used within the year the scholarship is awarded. It may be used for tuition and/or fees.
