Scholarship winner attributes love of gardening to late father

From the Kensington
Garden Club:

Each year, the Kensington Garden Club presents a scholarship to a student interested in agronomy, botany, conservation, forestry, environmental control, horticulture, landscape design, land management, or plant science and related fields. This year the club is proud to announce the scholarship winner as Michael Vignone.

A llifelong resident of Berlin, Vignone attributes his passion for gardening and plants to his late father, who would always have him help in the garden. Today, Vignone splits his focus between vegetables and flowers, as he runs Little Farm on the Hill; a small cut flower farm he started last summer.

Vignone is currently studying at Penn State University, where he plans to major in horticulture. He is also considering an additional degree in Agribusiness Management.

One day, Vignone hopes to run his own wholesale plant nursery, but for now, he is happy to be able to continue to learn from others as he builds his knowledge and skills.
