Scholarship

Virginia Petree Memorial Scholarship

Each year the Delaware Valley Unit of the Herb Society of America awards a scholarship to a student in horticulture at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, PA. This scholarship is named in honor of Virginia Petree a founding member of the unit which at the time was located at the Prallsville Mill in Stockton, NJ where the unit maintained an Industrial Herb Garden. Over the years the unit has had an herb plant sale in May to raise money for this scholarship. Virginia, a retired school teacher, and her husband a veterinarian were very active in the Unit and helped to create the Industrial Herb Garden at the Mill. Many years ago, Virginia and her husband moved to Virginia and did not maintain contact with the Unit. Since the scholarship was named in honor of Virginia Petree, the unit has continued this traditional of awarding a scholarship in her name even after moving the herb garden to the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead in Lambertville, NJ.
