News of interest to the gardeners and nature lovers of Connecticut.
CT Hort has arranged a discount on membership with the American Horticultural Society (AHS). A new or gift ‘single membership’ costs only $25 for a year, rather than the going rate of $35.
Every year CT Hort seeks nominations for this prestigious award named in honor of Dr. Gustav Mehlquist. Nominations must be received by April 30.

Our much loved Connecticut Horticultural Society (CT Hort) exists largely due to the help of many volunteers. They are a source of inspiration, knowledge and encouragement which is valued and enjoyed by all of us.
I recently came to an ‘aha’ moment during a conversation with Cheryl Marino, the chairperson of the Membership Committee. We were brainstorming on ways to find more people to staff the Membership Committee. We both feel strongly that increasing our membership ranks requires a personal touch; a human connection to our lively and interesting organization.
