The award, previously named the Althea Phillips award, began in 2002. This year the scholarship will be awarded to two students who are planning on continuing their careers in the field.
The scholarship ceremony will take place at the Minuteman High School. There is usually a tour of the greenhouse, then an optional luncheon in the Fife and Drum Restaurant on campus. If you are interested in attending, please contact Marilyn Ryngiewicz ,firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Late Season Garden.
Landscape horticulturist Warren Leach of Tranquil Lake Nursery will talk about the dynamic contrasts of the late season garden -- melding colorful late blooms, maturing fruit, fiery foliage and the plumes of ornamental grasses. The inertia of the season is compelling and with a little preparation a gardener can sit back and leisurely enjoy the garden fireworks. Warren will offer design ideas using before and after images of gardens he has designed and planted. Fall is an ideal time for planting and adding glorious fall fireworks to your own garden. Annual Meeting and Annual Lunch.
Saturday May 19, 7 AM – noon.
