A warm welcome to NGIWA.
With over 75 years of servicing the WA nursery industry, NGIWA is now firmly considered the peak body for horticulture in this state.
Our membership covers a diverse group of practicing horticulturists from both the retail and grower sectors as well as a number of prominent allied businesses that support our garden centres and nurserymen.
Belonging to a professional association has been a valuable part of my 30-year career, and the value to an individual or a business cannot be underestimated.
NGIWA provides more than just an annual fee. We deliver a variety of professional training workshops not only for the director but the apprentice. We also coordinate a variety of programs that credits and monitors your establishment and in doing so allows you to attract future business. But above all, we deliver one key ingredient -fellowship!
During my journey I have met a variety of professionals in our industry and it is partly due to this, that I am privileged to be the CEO of NGIWA.
I have gained through networking, a valuable insight into the workings of all fields of horticulture in our state and received considerable knowledge from like-minded individuals through long term friendships, but most importantly the personal support I have received from fellow horticulturists has given me the right tools in which to grow my career.
I therefore, not only look forward to meeting you personally but thank you for being a member of NGIWA and allowing us to be part of your journey.
