BAR HARBOR—This year’s recipient of the Peter H. Dolliver Legacy Scholarship is Madison Jones, a 2020 graduate of MDI High School and a Lamoine resident.
Jones has been interested in gardening for many years, and has her own garden and greenhouse, along with a donkey and chickens. She has worked at Salt Farm Flowers and Black Dog Medical in Lamoine. She hopes to one day start her own flower farm. Jones is pursuing a degree in sustainable agriculture at the University of Maine at Orono.
The scholarship is awarded to a deserving Maine high school graduate, with preference to MDI students, who are interested in plant-based fields of learning. It can also be awarded to someone with the goal of increasing the person’s skills in a plant-based area. This person does not necessarily need to be in school.
The scholarship was established by the children of Peter Dolliver. Dolliver found great happiness in his market garden.
