President’s Report September 2019

Welcome to the start of spring and the lead into the busy run to Christmas.

Over the last three months, the AIH Committee have been tirelessly working to organize a fantastic line-up of speakers for our upcoming conference. We are also preparing the annual awards night which looks set to be a great night of networking and social engagement.

The conference, for which you have no doubt received plenty of information about, is going to be an informative day that will give an insight into how horticulture is assisting with ameliorating the changing climate. I thank our national councillor and conference Convenor, Neville Passmore, FAIH RH, for his assistance with setting up this event.

A big thank you also goes to our hard-working and extremely committed members I have working with me at AIH. Their work on the conference and awards night will ensure that the two events will be enjoyed by all who attend. Therapeutic Horticulture Australia, where I sit on their council, is also delivering an impressive line-up of speakers for their conference. It is a must for anyone wanting to gather information on what’s happening in this emerging sector of our industry.

With only a couple of weeks to go, I recommend to anyone wishing to network with like-minded professionals and hear what both Therapeutic Horticulture and horticulturists are doing about climate change, to come along and have a look at what’s on offer in Perth from 19th – 22nd September 2019.

Hope to see you in Perth.

Michael Casey
