The Bar Harbor Garden Club is proud to announce the establishment of The Peter H. Dolliver Legacy Scholarship.  The purpose of the scholarship is to offer financial aid to Applicants who have a strong interest in Farming & Horticulture and are graduates of a Maine high school, with a preference for MDI High School graduates.  Qualification details and Application forms for various scholarships can be found at www.barharborgardenclub.com.

The scholarship was established by the children of Peter Dolliver (1935-2015), in memory of their father, owner/operator of Deer Meadow Landscapes & Gardens in Manset.  In his later years, after his retirement, he found great happiness in tending his market garden, growing fruits and vegetables for appreciative recipients, and was particularly delighted to show young people the magic of growing things.  The Dolliver Family is sincerely grateful to those who have contributed to the The Peter H. Dolliver Legacy Scholarship.     Read more …
