BOOMAROO Nurseries and Ausveg Victoria hosted their inaugural Women in Horticulture event last month, which celebrated and encouraged the contribution of women in the industry.
Held in Melbourne in the lead up to International Women’s Day, the event included presentations from an array of speakers, covering topics like wellness and balance, and quick brand techniques in today’s busy world.
The event aimed to bring together women from various parts of the horticulture industry, and saw more than 70 attend.

Presenters came from a range of horticulture businesses, including BASF, NAB, Grindstone Creative, and Swisse Wellness.
The event coincides with Ausveg Victoria’s Women in Horticulture award, which looks to recognise the hard work of any outstanding women in the industry.
The award is set to be announced in mid-April.
