About New Hampshire Plant Growers Association (NHPGA)
The New Hampshire Plant Growers Association is a non-profit organization with a
mission to grow and nurture the interests of horticulture and horticultural allied
trades in New Hampshire. The NHPGA represents over 200 horticultural and allied
trade businesses – part of the vibrant $276 million environmental horticulture
industry in New Hampshire. Members include florists, garden centers, greenhouses,
landscape service providers, nurseries, sod growers and related wholesale
In 2011 the NHPGA partnered with the New Hampshire Farm Bureau. The NHPGA continues
to be its own entity, but many administrative duties have been assumed by NHFB.
These duties include complete bookkeeping services as well as phone and mail
service. Other responsibilities include the maintenance of the NHPGA database,
mailing information to NHPGA members, and assisting with the Summer and Winter
Meetings. The partnership between the two organizations is intended to benefit the
NHFB as well. The horticulture industry is a major contributor to agricultural
business in New Hampshire. This relationship allows the NHFB to increase its reach
to this industry.
