Southern Gardening wins another award
BILOXI, Miss. -- Southern Gardening media products of the Mississippi State University Extension Service once again brought home top honors in competition.
Hosted by Gary Bachman, Extension horticulturist, Southern Gardening is a television program, newspaper column and radio show with a strong online presence. These products are offered weekly year-round to the state’s media and directly to consumers across the region.
Southern Gardening received the Blue Ribbon Extension Publication Award from the Southern region of the American Society for Horticultural Science. This award was formally presented in Jacksonville, Florida, in February.
The award honors Southern Gardening as an example of Extension at its finest, offering exciting and educational work.
“This is truly a team effort, and I thank all my team for their help in this great work of spreading the good news about home and garden horticulture,” Bachman said.
This is not the first regional or national award Southern Gardening has received. In 2012, Southern Gardening received another award from the American Society of Horticultural Science. Since 2014, Southern Gardening has annually received top awards from the National Association of County Agricultural Agents, along with a long list of awards at state competition.
