Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Community Greening Award
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society recognizes greening and beautification efforts throughout the region that have benefitted communities.
The Community Greening Award acknowledges the efforts of those who have organized and improved their main streets, public parks, traffic islands, train stations, churches, schoolyards, libraries, businesses, etc. Municipalities that have led tree planting initiatives, combated storm-water runoff, or pursued other ecological projects may also apply.
Judges evaluate the nominated sites in July and August based on plant variety, design, use of space, and horticultural practices. Sites that have been recognized in previous years may be evaluated for a maintenance award.
Nominate a greening project for the PHS Community Greening Award by July 15! Nominations may be submitted online at PHSonline.org. Go to PHS Events and click on Community Greening Award.
