You are part of a worldwide community. Just what is the ASHS community and what are some its benefits? What is ASHS? The American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS) is the world’s premier professional society for horticultural science. Founded in 1903, the mission of ASHS is to promote and encourage national and international interest in scientific research and education in horti -culture in all its branches. The more than 2500 ASHS members in all 50 states and 60 countries around the world fulfill this mission by shar -ing the results of their research, teaching, and extension activities with their colleagues and humankind the world over. Who are ASHS members? • We are researchers, teachers, and extension educators. • We work at universities, in government, and in industry. • We are in every state and many other countries. What we do. • Members use horticultural science to address major issues facing our nations and our world. • Provide the research that keeps our fruit, vegetable, turf, and or-namental crop producers competitive and allows them to raise their crops sustainably. • Educate tomorrow’s researchers and teachers in specialty crops. • Educate tomorrow’s fruit, vegetable, floral, and nursery crop growers. • Translate the latest fundamental research into products and prac-tices that improve our health, communities, and environment. • Improve rural economies by supporting profitable horticultural production. • Train the stewards of our urban and suburban environment. • Improve food security in central cities by making urban farms and gardens successful. • Improve sports and recreation through better natural playing sur-faces. There are many benefits to being a member in the ASHS commu -nity—this monthly ASHS Newsletter is just one. Continued on p. 7 That̓s quite an impressive community.
