Searching for That Special Someone

May 5, 2014 - 07:47

Do you have a personal hero in the horticulture industry?

Is there one person who you think really has made a difference over the years and continues to push the envelope and propel our industry into the future?

If you do, then we want to hear about him or her because that person could be GPN's 2014 Hort Hero.

We want to recognize one woman or man who has shown remarkable dedication and commitment to advancing our industry. 

This person will join our previous honorees — Ken Altman, the late Jack WIlliams, Dr. Charlie Hall and Danny Takao — who have and continue to make an indelible mark on the horticulture industry.

Just like we have done with Ken, Jack, Charlie and Danny, we want to recognize the hard work, enthusiasm and passion of that individual who is making our industry a better one!

If you think you know someone who fits this description, then please drop me a line at and tell me why you think that person qualifies to be GPN's 2014 Hort Hero.

The deadline for nominations is May 30, 2014

GPN’s 2014 Hort Hero will be announced at Cultivate'14 in July and featured in our September issue.
