Gardener Recognition Awards 2018

Presenting Sponsor

 

The Cincinnati Horticultural Society hosted its 23rd Annual Gardener Recognition Awards October 4 at Kenwood Country Club.  Sponsored by Western & Southern Financial Fund, the evening paid tribute to Greater Cincinnati gardeners and businesses whose contributions to horticulture are an inspiration in the community.  Nominated by fellow gardeners, friends and neighbors, gardens were judged by a team of horticulturists in early summer, with recipients honored at the fall event for their outstanding efforts toward community beautification.  Twenty-nine winners received the prestigious award representing neighborhoods from east to west, Anderson Township to Western Hills and from downtown Cincinnati to Guilford, Indiana.
