Mounts Botanical Garden Wins Prestigious National Award from American Public Gardens Association

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - June 9, 2023 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach, FL – June 8, 2023) Rochelle Wolberg, Curator-Director at Mounts Botanical Garden, is bursting with pride since Palm Beach County's oldest and largest botanical garden was awarded this year's prestigious Dorothy E. Hansell Marketing Award from the American Public Gardens Association, the nation's leading professional organization for the field of public horticulture.

The annual award "recognizes outstanding marketing and communications that advance a public garden's mission." Mounts Botanical Garden was honored for The Palm Beaches in Bloom, a week-long wow-worthy tropical botanical art installation last December at Hudson Yards in New York City.

"The Palm Beaches were certainly in bloom and Mounts Botanical Garden was proud to be an integral part of this dynamic tourism activation event, along with Discover the Palm Beaches and the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County," says Wolberg. "We invited celebrated floral installation artist Lisa Waud to create a living botanical artistic display that highlighted and captured the essence of the outdoors and art experiences one may experience when visiting Palm Beach County. The environmentally friendly installation was inspired by the lifeguard towers that dot our beaches and featured over 1,300 orchids, tropical plants, and perennial vines, several of which were taken directly from the Garden's collection."

Mounts Botanical Garden's Curator-Director Rochelle Wolberg, Associate Director of Marketing & Communications Misty Stoller, and Board Member Paton White accepted the 2023 Dorothy E. Hansell Marketing Award this week at APGA's annual conference in Fort Worth, Texas. Previous winners of this award include the Philadelphia Flower Show (2022), San Francisco Botanical Gardens (2021), and both Naples Botanical Garden and Missouri Botanical Garden in 2020.
