Todd Bachman is one of three members of the Interior Plantscape Hall of Fame’s 2009 class, as announced last week by the Plant Industry Alliance (PIA). Richard Parker and Tom Acklin are the other inductees.
Bachman, who was tragically killed at the Olympics last summer, grew up working in greenhouses and was known for his passion for the green industry. He worked as a chairman and board member of many boards, including the Minnesota Commercial Flower Growers, Society of American Florists, North Central Florists’ Association, Ohio State Florists’ Association, American Floral Endowment, Yoder Brothers, Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association Foundation and Hortica Insurance Company.
Bachman was a strong supporter of his community through his faith and through the establishment of the Todd and Barbara Bachman Chair in Horticulture/Floriculture Marketing at the University of Minnesota.
The 2009 inductees will be inducted into the Interior Plantscape Hall of Fame on October 1 at the PIA Interior Plantscape Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet during CalScape Expo, the annual interior plantscape conference and tradeshow that will be held at the Flamingo-Harrah’s in Las Vegas
