It’s official: AmericanHort launched on January 1. The new trade association is the result of a consolidation between the American Nursery & Landscape Association and OFA — The Association of Horticulture Professionals. Members of the legacy organizations voted in overwhelming support of a consolidation of the two entities into one association to serve the entire horticulture industry. The new organization will represent the whole of the plant industry, including breeders, greenhouse and nursery growers, garden center retailers, distributors, interior and exterior landscape professionals, florists, students, educators, researchers, manufacturers and all of those who are part of the industry supply chain.
The mission of AmericanHort is to unite, promote and advance our industry through advocacy, collaboration, connectivity, education, market development, and research. The association will have its primary office in Columbus, Ohio, and an office in Washington, D.C. to facilitate government relations and research activities.
