She has been interested in gardening for many years. Madison 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. Madison is pursuing a degree in sustainable agriculture at the University of Maine at Orono.

The Peter Dolliver 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. Peter found great happiness in his market garden. Growing food for him was his heart’s work
