The Horticulture Awards Program (HAP) is to encourage the cultivation and distribution of a wide variety of plants within the club.

HAP submissions are open only to MAAH members in good standing. The form below is used for either of the following:

You are donating a physical plant that you propagated at home to a MAAH auctions and want to earn points towards HAP levels and certificates. Please submit this form at least 48 hours prior to the meeting. You must ALSO fill out an auction entry.

You can demonstrate that an aquatic plant has begun flowering while in your custody. In this case, the form can be submitted at any time.
