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 operators.

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.
