An Interview with AHS Board Chair, Scott C. Plein
Please meet Scott Plein, Chairman of the American Horticultural Society’s Board of Directors since July 2022. He has been a wealth of knowledge and advice, providing strategic direction and oversight of the organization and River Farm, AHS’s headquarters in Alexandria, VA.
Scott wants to see “… that we make the AHS a more influential voice and resource to everybody who loves horticulture.” He also wants to promote a horticulture that is both sensitive to ecological concerns and promotes traditional horticultural practices at the same time.
David Ellis, editor of The American Gardener, interviews Plein in the January/February issue of the magazine. Find out about the Board’s key objectives for the AHS, the challenges facing the horticulture industry, AHS’s role nationally and regionally, and the top priorities of River Farm.
