Have You Met the Class of 2021?

This year marks the 10th anniversary of GPN’s 40 Under 40 program where we recognize the young men and women who are setting the direction for the horticulture industry’s future.

Like the previous nine classes, the Class of 2021 represents the entire spectrum of the horticulture industry — from plant breeder to retail expert and a little bit of everything in between.

These 21 women and 19 men, and the previous 360 honorees, are all outstanding at doing their jobs and also have a wide variety of interests in their pursuits when they are off of the clock.

Check out the May issue of GPN to learn more about the Class of 2021.
