The Nursery and Garden community's top organisations and outstanding individuals gathered together at Hawkesbury racecourse Friday night the 25th November to celebrate the annual NGINA (Nursery and Garden Industry NSW & ACT) Awards.
The awards consisted of a range of awards from the NGINA Awards of Honour, the NGI Industry awards for best businesses based on the National Awards criteria and finally our popular Members Choice Awards. With a record number of nominations for the Members Choice Awards the winners were voted on from a competitive field of entrants, all of whom demonstrate that they run excellent businesses.
Australia's largest network of organisations and individuals working towards increased and improved urban green space, the 202020 Vision has been announced as a winner at the highly regarded Banksia Sustainability Awards within the Sustainable Cities category.
Please find below a joint release from the Nursery & Garden Industry network following the joint meeting on the Structure Review on the 14th November.
As pointed out in the release all States and Territories accept that change is required but it must also be noted that there was insufficient detail to make a final decision on the recommended structure. It was agreed at the meeting that more work was required to perform financial modelling and work out the finer detail on some of the still contentious issues.
A number of states still have some reservations on the proposed structure and until the detail is provided will not fully endorse the recommended structure.
