We invite you to renew your membership with NHPGA and continue to be an active participant. We also encourage those of you who are not current members to join our organization. The NHPGA continues to carry out our mission by serving growers, retailers, garden centers, nurserymen, florists, allied tradesmen, industry representatives, educators, and gardening enthusiasts in New Hampshire and beyond.
NHPGA has been instrumental in bringing the Plant Something campaign to NH. The Plant Something NH campaign is a way to tie the marketing efforts of your business to a state-wide campaign promoting NH grown plants. So far, the campaign has been funded by the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant program and local sponsors. As a grant funded program, funding and future awards cannot be guaranteed. Our sponsors help to ensure the future sustainability of the Plant Something NH program. Add a donation to Plant Something NH on your Membership Form or email us at info@PlantSomethingNH.org for sponsor opportunities.
Our partnership with the New Hampshire Farm Bureau Federation (NHFB) is going extremely well as they now are doing the majority of the administrative duties for NHPGA. We encourage members of our organization to become members of NHFB if you have not already done so. They serve an extremely important role in our state as advocates for those in the agricultural sector. The fee that NHPGA pays for administration by NHFB is based on the percentage of NHPGA members who are also NHFB members. The partnership is designed to benefit both organizations and their individual members.
Some additional benefits provided through your membership and involvement in NHPGA includes:
- Networking with other growers, retailers, and suppliers at meetings and during tours of nurseries, greenhouses, and garden centers.
- Providing a proactive network for pertinent legislative issues affecting the ornamental horticulture industry here in New Hampshire and beyond through work with the NHFB and other organizations.
- Educational opportunities for you and your employees through joint meetings in partnership with New Hampshire Landscape association, UNH Cooperative Extension, and other local trade organizations. Many meetings also offer opportunities to earn credits necessary to maintain pesticide licenses.
- Supporting continued research in the green industry through grants provided by NHPGA’s New Hampshire Horticultural Endowment.
- Ensuring the continued success of the green industry through support of groups such as FFA and by providing scholarships to post secondary school students studying horticulture. • Opportunity to shape the future of Plant Something NH with member surveys and participation, as well as advance notice of campaign related news, developments, and marketing resources.
