We’re proud to announce that Tom Wichman, state coordinator for the Florida Master Gardener Program, won a Silver Award of Achievement from the Garden Writers Association!
As part of the Garden Writer Association’s 2012 Media Awards, Tom won a silver in the “On-Air, Radio” category for his work as “the voice” of the radio program, Gardening in a Minute.
Celebrating its fifth year, Gardening in a Minute is a radio program airing every day on public radio stations in Florida. Each show gives a short tip to amateur and experienced gardeners, and the website features all the shows plus additional gardening information. The show is a production of the UF/IFAS Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology, IFAS/Extension, and WUFT-FM.
Garden Writers Association is the national organization for garden professionals, including book authors, staff editors, syndicated columnists, freelance writers, photographers, radio and television personalities, extension agents, and more.
As a Silver Award recipient, Tom will also be eligible for a Gold Award at the GWA 2012 Awards Banquet on October 15, 2012 in Tucson, AZ.
Congratulations to both Tom and Gardening in a Minute!
