Spring Meadow Nursery Receives Wilfred J. Jung Distinguished Service Medal

GardenComm International celebrated a successful return to in-person events with its recent conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A highlight of the conference is the honors and awards ceremony, where among the many awards presented was the Wilfred J. Jung Distinguished Service Medal, of which Spring Meadow Nursery/Proven Winners® ColorChoice® was the recipient.

The Wilfred J. Jung Distinguished Service Medal is awarded annually to an allied member, recognizing outstanding contributions to GardenComm and the industry.

Maria Zampini, President of GardenComm, commented, “GardenComm has been extremely fortunate to have Spring Meadow Nursery/Proven Winners® ColorChoice® as an allied member, and they are so deserving of the Jung award.

They have been a valued member, going above and beyond with financial and in-kind support. Perhaps most importantly, allowing their staff to contribute their time as member volunteers to serve on committees, as speakers, exhibitors, and various other tasks has been a significant boost to the organization, helping to move it forward.”
