Fred Winter Memorial Scholarships for Excellence in Horticulture

For the tenth year, the Philadelphia Society for the Promoting Agriculture (PSPA) will award the Fred Winter Memorial Scholarships for Excellence in Horticulture to outstanding regional college students who plan to pursue careers in horticulture.

Dr. Fred Winter was a gardener extraordinaire, horticulturalist and ardent rhododendron propagator from the Pottstown, Pa., area. His farm, Schuylkill Navigation Company Farm, is listed in the archives of American Gardens of the Smithsonian.  The memorial scholarships are possible due to the continuing support of Mrs. Barbara Winter, Dr. Winter’s widow.
