The Horticultural Research Institute (HRI), the research affiliate of the American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA), has announced the establishment of the South Carolina Nursery & Landscape Association (SCNLA) Fund.
"The South Carolina Nursery and Landscape Association is excited to be a part of an endowment fund that has such a good track record in supporting horticultural research," says Donna Shealy Foster, SCNLA executive director. "The SCNLA Board of Directors felt the time had come to invest in the industry that has given so much to all of us. We are proud to be a part of the HRI family."
HRI was established in 1962 as the research arm of ANLA. HRI's mission is to direct, fund, promote and communicate horticultural research, which increases the quality and value of ornamental plants, improves the productivity and profitability of the nursery and landscape industry, and protects and enhances the environment.
