HCCC Honors Marion Sullivan

From a Facebook post by Houston Center for Contemporary Craft:

The Herb Society of America (HSA) gave HCCC our first (lead) grant to get the Craft Garden started in 2003. This year, the HSA presented Marion Sullivan–our head volunteer gardener–with a Certificate of Achievement for the implementation and continuation of the Craft Garden at HCCC. Our garden is the only garden in the U.S. that is devoted to plants used in all the soft crafts (basketmaking, dyeing, papermaking, and textiles.) There are other gardens that feature craft plants, but only feature one or two disciplines in any one location. This award is the result of a nomination by members of the HSA, supporting letters from other members, and peer reviews by a committee of former awardees and board members. A maximum of three awards of this type are given in any year. Congratulations, Marion, and we thank you for all your hard work!
