History and Objective:
Vic Ball was the son of Ball Horticultural founder George Jacob Ball. As the leading North American producer and distributor of ornamental plants and their seeds, Ball Horticulture has had a tremendous presence in the horticulture business

In 1992, Vic and Margaret Ball made a generous donation to AFE to establish this program for students to receive critical “hands on” growing experiences to help ensure successful future generations of horticulture professionals.
