John Dole Receives Prestigious Award


The Society of American Florists (SAF) recently presented one of its highest honors, the Alex Laurie Award for Research and Education, to the ASCFG’s own John Dole. This award is given annually to an individual who has made broad-scope, long-lasting contributions to research or education in the floriculture industry. We already know how valuable John is to the entire floriculture industry, and particularly to its cut flower segment, and are delighted to see him receiving this much-deserved recognition.
