Retailers Night - All The Dirt

Over 30 members headed to Dawson’s Garden World in Forrestfield for our spring Retailers Night last week with special guests from ‘All The Dirt”, Deryn Thorpe & Steve Woods.   The evening kicked off with a presentation from Gemma McQuade and Jeff Doyle from Yates, who kindly sponsored the evening. Yates are a household name when it comes to gardening and it was terrific to see some of their favourite products like Dynamic Lifter being rebranded and made more appealing to our garden centres for sale.
Steve and Deryn from the podcast "All The Dirt" provided a thoroughly entertaining presentation and demonstrated how by thinking outside the box, anything is achievable in connecting with the information-hungry, gardening public.

Ross Hooper and Matthew Lunn spoke briefly on updates from GCA and NGIWA and new members Daniel and Stephen Varischetti from Coast Road Palms were presented with their NGIWA Member sign.

Our thanks go to Garden Centres Association of Australia (GCA) for supporting the evening, Charlie and the team at Dawson’s who had the garden centre looking at it’s best and Ross Hooper for putting it all together and being a stand-out MC for the night.
