This year, it is with great pleasure that the Society has selected Sarah Bailey as the recipient of the Mehlquist Award.
Thank you Heidi Wheeler Isaacson for selflessly volunteering your time every year for our wonderful organization.
Our September Online Auction is open for bidding from September 13-23.
We have unusual plants that come from the personal gardens of members Nancy DuBrule-Clemente and Robert Herman. There are also non-plant offerings such as dinner with wine for 8, an academic coach/tutor, or artwork.
Please be sure to use our new address!

The time has come to re-direct the funds being spent to maintain an office space.
Some of you may remember long-time CT Hort members Florence and Ralph Marrone. They were extraordinary gardeners with a deep love of nature. Their daughter Pam Marrone is a scientist and entrepreneur who has made a career of developing biological controls to replace chemicals in agriculture.
The costs to run the Society have been kept minimal by maintaining a nearly all-volunteer organization. But since our pleas for volunteers have gone unanswered, we must now consider hiring additional staff to provide the services required to keep CT Hort alive.
