Great American Gardeners Awards program accepting nominations

Do you know someone in the gardening community who deserves recognition for horticultural excellence? Nominate your “horticultural champion” an exemplary sustainable garden, a thought leader delivering groundbreaking research, or the driving force behind horticultural innovation. Six categories of awards (outlined below) will be recognized in 2024. Nominations will be accepted through Sept. 29.

The AHS Awards Program was initiated in 1953 and originally offered four awards: the Horticultural Writing Award, Professional Award, Teaching Award, and Scientific Award. It has grown and evolved over the years to the current Great American Gardeners Awards Program.

Every year, the American Horticultural Society (AHS) solicits nominations from the general public for the nation’s top individuals and organizations in gardening/horticulture, and presents awards to the “Horticultural Champions” in a variety of categories.
