Elder statesmen and women of the Nursery & Garden Industry Association of WA were recognised for their work in shaping their industry at a lunch at the Fremantle Sailing club last week. The event was the initiative of Kim Bailey.
Past and current HMAA members attending the event included Nick Bell, Sue McDougall, Deryn Thorpe, Joanne Harris, Ross and Jackie Hooper along with Lisa Passmore and Neville Passmore.
Nick Bell spoke about his early days in South-West Western Australia restocking Yates’ seed stands and John Colwill and Neville Passmore talked about the early days in gardening radio and television.
Speaking after the event, John Colwill said it was great to find out what everyone was doing. He recommended it as a great idea for future events in other states.
