One of the key roles of the NGIWA is to ensure that best practices are adhered to within the growing and selling of plants and to this extent, members can become accredited through a number of national programs known as the Farm Management System. The accreditation scheme NIASA has gone a long way in not only combatting the pathogen Phytophthora but also reducing the introduction of naturally occurring pest and diseases in our diverse but fragile environment.

Working Towards A Better Industry & Environment

One of the key roles of the NGIWA is to ensure that best practices are adhered to within the growing and selling of plants and to this extent, members can become accredited through a number of national programs known as the Farm Management System. The accreditation scheme NIASA has gone a long way in not only combatting the pathogen Phytophthora but also reducing the introduction of naturally occurring pest and diseases in our diverse but fragile environment.

As part of its advocacy role, NGIWA continues to work closely with local and state government to ensure landscaping and revegetation programs are carried out under environmentally responsible and sustainable guidelines and that plant material is sourced where possible from accredited nurseries.

NGIWA is an active member of the Green Space Alliance which was formed in 2014. This group seeks to improve our environment by safe guarding and improving public open space particularly where new developments are concerned. It is vital we all work together to ensure a clear formula is achieved where physical structures impede on our natural landscape so that green space can be safeguarded or created.

We have also built strong relationships with key stakeholders within our industry and these include, but are not limited to, the Water Corporation and Perth NRM. For 2017 we will be rolling out across garden centres and nurseries a series of public workshops to promote sustainable horticultural practices that support WA’s diminishing water ressources.

NGIWA is now firmly considered the peak body for horticulture in WA and belonging to a professional Association cannot be underestimated in value to an individual or a business. NGIWA prides itself on being an Association that is informative, up to date and working with leaders in all facets of horticulture. Above all it delivers true fellowship which ensures the nursery and garden industry will continue to grow for many more generations.

NextGen

NextGen is a networking and social group for young people who work in the horticulture industry. The nursery and garden sector is full of enthusiastic and successful individuals and NextGen is a forum for those people between (but not restricted to) the ages of 18 and 35 to meet, exchange ideas, hone leadership skills and most of all have fun!

NextGen WA is an NGIWA initiative to help future leaders within the Western Australian horticulture, landscaping and related industries meet their peers and form useful, educational and lasting relationships. Our members are from all facets of horticulture and embody the next generation of industry leaders. We meet regularly in a social environment to share, network and learn.

The group aims to build membership numbers and establish a forum for its members to become more familiar within their chosen career.
