Nathan Urben, a University of Wisconsin-Madison student with an interest in pursuing a career as a grower, recently received a $1,000 scholarship from the Wisconsin Nursery Association.
Urben, a native of New Glarus, Wisc., is a double major in horticulture and Spanish. His goal is to work as a grower, as a horticulturist at a botanic garden or as a garden center owner.
“In this role, I will not only be able to convey my passion for plants, but also the importance of creating environmentally sound landscapes,” Urben to the Wisconsin Nursery Association. “I feel it is my duty as a horticulturist to emphasize this key concept to my future customers so that they can make smart decisions concerning their landscaping needs.”
