|A Letter From Our President|
My husband Horace Hagedorn died in January 2005 at 89 years of age. Horace was notable for a great deal more than his longevity. He was a devoted philanthropist and the marketing genius behind Miracle-Gro plant food, perhaps the best-known product in the gardening industry.
When asked for business advice, Horace was fond of saying, “Find a need and fill it.” He applied this motto to his wide-ranging philanthropic activities, giving to countless community and charitable projects with an eye toward bringing about meaningful results.
