The Next ClassBy Teresa McPherson

Every year, Lawn & Garden Retailer’s sister publication Greenhouse Product News recognizes 40 individuals under the age of 40 who are really making a difference in the horticultural industry.

We’ve featured some of them in our Fresh Perspectives column of the magazine, and now it’s your turn. Nominations are open at for the Class of 2020.

If you know someone that fits that description, GPN wants to know more about that individual. Just go to and fill out the nomination form and explain why you think he/she belongs in the Class of 2020.

Anyone working in the horticulture industry can be nominated as long as they are under the age of 40 (as of Jan. 31, 2020.) Previously nominated individuals who have not been selected in prior years can be nominated again as long as they have not yet turned 40.

The Class of 2020 will be recognized in the May issue of GPN, as well as at several different functions at Cultivate’20 next summer in Columbus, Ohio.

The deadline for nominations is Jan. 21, 2020.
