The time is nearly upon Florida’s nursery and landscape industry to sit back and reflect on the people who made 2020 what it was - innovative, prosperous, and warm.
FNGLA’s Industry awards recognize those member volunteers who give their time and talents to serving on committees, at chapter meetings, trade shows, or any of the other dozens of ways.
To recognize those invaluable efforts, FNGLA awards deserving individuals in a number of different categories:
