Vintage Associates Inc. / DHSCV
2013 Scholarship Winners

At the October 19th Desert Garden Community Day we awarded five outstanding College of the Desert students in Environmental Horticulture and Turfgrass Management $4000 in scholarships. This is the third year for the Vintage/Desert Horticulture Scholarships. Originally founded by the Vintage Associates -- The Desert's Garden Center -- and now a cooperative effort of Vintage and the Desert Horticulture Society of the Coachella Valley the scholarships are provided to encourage students towards careers in horticulture and landscape. A total of $11,000 has been provided over three years based on academic achievement, community service and need. The Desert Horticulture Society is proud to partner with Greg Gritters of the Vintage Associates and Jeff Place of the College of the Desert. We were honored this year to be joined by the Mayor of Palm Desert, Jan Harnick in the presentation of these scholarships to these five wonderful students at the College of the Desert.  In the photo above are from left to right:
