Dave Fujino, leader of the California Center for Urban Horticulture, to receive industry accolade

Dave Fujino, executive director of the California Center for Urban Horticulture (CCUH), will be inducted into the Green Industry Hall of Fame on May 20.

CCUH has been under Fujino’s leadership since its founding more than a decade ago. From its headquarters at UC Davis, the organization has been the catalyst for bringing together academia, industry professionals, and public agencies in the horticulture and landscape arena. CCUH workshops promote scientific research and strategies to enhance California’s urban environment.

“We are very pleased that Dr. Fujino is getting this well-deserved recognition,” said Helene Dillard, dean of the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Dave has been an extraordinary steward of a program that has helped create much-needed educational events for a wide range of people involved in urban horticulture—nursery professionals, UC Master Gardeners, landscape water managers, and many others.”

Fujino also serves as co-director of the UC Nursery and Floriculture Alliance at UC Davis, and as chair of the Saratoga Horticultural Research Endowment. Prior to becoming the CCUH executive director in 2007, he worked for 17 years with a large wholesale horticulture company. He earned his B.S. in Plant Science at UC Riverside, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from UC Davis in Environmental Horticulture and Plant Physiology.

“The purpose of the Green Industry Hall of Fame is to honor individuals, past and present, for their significant impact and contributions to the green industry,” said Marcie Daigle, with the Green Industry Hall of Fame Committee. The “green industry” includes wholesale nursery and greenhouse growers, retail garden centers, and landscape contractors, designers, and architects.

The induction ceremony takes place at the Black and Gold Golf Course in Yorba Linda, California. Learn more about the green industry here and about CCUH here.
