George Mason University’s Arlington Green Patriot 2016 Award
In 2016, MGNV won both Green Patriot Award and the People’s Choice Award! And VCE’s Family & Consumer Science Extension Agent Jennifer Abel won the individual award! A clean sweep for VCE! Credit goes to all of you who have over the years built a really vibrant organization dedicated to gardening and sustainable landscape management to VCE for training us, and to Kirsten Buhls, Agriculture & Natural Resource Extension Agent for leading the program and nominating us for the award! We received a nice plaque and a certificate for being a nominee, and a certificate for winning the People’s Choice Award.
