The Best GIG in Town

The Garden Inspiration Group, GIG, held their annual event for independent Garden Centres on Monday evening March at The Manningham Function Centre in Melbourne.

Around 150 guests from Victoria, NSW and Queensland were treated to inspiring speakers and presentations from the six sponsoring companies.

Three highlights of the evening were:

  • A Zoom link with Jon Dee, of One Tree Per Child fame, from Armenia and a video featuring the late Olivia Newton-John. Olivia was of course co-founder of One Tree Per Child.
  • The next highlight was a panel of three young ladies from the industry discussing all things horticulture chaired by our MC for the evening Chloe Thomson.
  • The third highlight was the presentation of the GIG Industry Champion Award for 2024. A well-deserved winner was Meagan Wigg from Gardenworld in Braeside.

The six sponsoring companies are:

  • Biemond Nurseries
  • Bombora/Grow Better
  • Plant Growers Australia
  • Takasho Australia
  • Trenton Cottage
  • Ausflora Pacific
