Nena Past Pres Sept12

The New England Nursery Association (NENA) celebrated its 100-year anniversary on September 13, 2012 at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Bolyston, MA. Members from across the region gathered to reconnect with friends and colleagues, swap stories, and look at what lies ahead for New England's commercial horticulture industry.

"NENA promotes and builds relationships. I dare say I've learned something from just about every person in this room," said the NENA president, Robin Struck of D.R. Struck Landscape Nursery in Winthrop, ME, in her opening remarks. "I cannot imagine running my business, as I have for more than 25 years, without this organization."
