AIH Conference and Awards Night – Workshops and Tour 2019

September 21 - September 22

Save The Date for a spectacular AIH National Conference & Awards Night, Workshops & Tour
21-22 September 2019!


We’re already planning a wonderful program for members and guests to experience the best of Perth as we recognise and celebrate the best of Australian horticulture. WA is famed for its natural beauty, favourable climate and unique horticultural heritage. Spring is a beautiful time of the year to spend in Perth and that’s why we’re having our superb annual Awards 2019 event in Perth, among the wildflowers and water of WA.


It’s time to put the date in your calendar and check your frequent flyer points! 



The Honourable Rita Saffioti MLA Minister for Transport and Planning has agreed to open the conference. We have four professors addressing the conference including Peter Newman, Lyn Abbott, Stephen Hopper and Simon Forrest.


From the down to earth practical side of horticulture we have Graeme Sait from Nutri-Tech Solutions, Warren Stevens from Belmont City Council, Julian Rose, winner of last year’s, AIH Green Space Award, Steve Marafiote of Sundrop Farms, South Australia, Graham McAlpine of Perth Natural Resource Management and Mark Tucek of Tucker Bush Plants.
