Beautiful display garden signifies a week-long celebration of Horticulture at Parliament House
Members from the peak industry body for the Victorian horticulture sector, Nursery & Garden Industry Victoria (NGIV), will tomorrow (Tuesday) curate a beautiful display garden as the centrepiece of Queen’s Hall as part of the week-long Annual Horticulture Showcase exhibition.
NGIV members will ‘green’ Victorian Parliament House to highlight the important role that horticulture plays in ensuring Victoria remains both liveable and resilient.
Specifically, NGIV are encouraging every Member of Parliament to discover the size, scale and scope of Victoria’s $2.5 billion horticulture industry, and the essential role it plays in growing healthier environments, communities, and economies for Victorians.
An increase in green space can combat the negative effects caused by urban island heat, mitigating climatic events such as flooding and extreme heat and improving safety and comfort for city commuters and will support Victoria’s target of net zero emissions by or before 2050.
These beautiful display garden highlight the significance of Victoria as Australia’s home of horticulture. The recently launched industry report, “realization of growth opportunities within the nursery and garden industry”, commissioned by NGIV and independently prepared by RM Consulting Group provides fact-based recognition of the sector and validates its economic worth.
