Rutgers Master Gardeners of Cumberland County have honored Sam Pace of Millville with the Rutgers Master Gardener of the Year Award for 2015 in Cumberland County. Pace will be recognized for the outstanding work he has done in Cumberland County on Oct. 3 at the Master Gardeners’ Conference in New Brunswick… In 1985, Pace attended the Rutgers Greenhouse Growing Conference. This led to his building a small greenhouse on his property where he grew a variety of bedding plants, hanging baskets and flower bags. Today, he is in the process of completing another greenhouse.

He has been an instructor in the Therapeutic Horticulture Program at the Veteran’s Home in Vineland and the Master Gardeners’ native plant and vegetable propagation program.
