As a gardener and member of the local horticultural society, I’d like to help spread the word that District 16 (Simcoe County) of the Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA) provides an annual Award to a student enrolled in a post-secondary horticultural program of at least 2 years.
Horticultural students in Simcoe County can apply for the Dr. Ives Horticultural Fund of District 16. This Award was established in 1976 to honour Dr. Raymond Ives of Stayner, a respected horticulturalist and family physician. “This award is intended to encourage the study of horticulture at the post-secondary level by students with homes in Simcoe County.”
“When there is a shortage of applications for two year horticultural students; students enrolled in a post-secondary horticultural course shorter than 2 years, in an independent horticultural course of study or in environmental and conservation programs are eligible for a reduced award.”
Applications are being accepted until October 15. For more information, visit the Ontario Horticultural Society, Dr. Ives Horticultural Award or download the Application Form: DIHA.
