56th Annual Man / Woman of the Year Celebration

LINLA honors Long Island Horticultural Research and Extension Center (LIHREC) as their Men and Women of the Year!


This year LINLA will be expanding our celebration! Not just by honoring the Men & Women of LIHREC but by reaching out beyond the Horticultural community to our friends in Agriculture and Arboriculture 


In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of LIHREC, LINLA will be honoring the Men & Women; scientists, educators and professionals, whose careers have shaped and guided generations of horticultural professionals on Long Island. Here is your chance to celebrate the individuals, who through their work at LIHREC, hugely impact our industry by providing the tools and knowledge we need to succeed. 


By showing your appreciation and supporting this event you help the Lab make much need upgrades to the facility. 

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Research Greenhouse Restoration fund.
