Horticulture, a group that now truly represents horticulture” Tania said.

AUSVEG chair, Geoff Moar also welcomed the news saying “…if we are going to take horticulture in
Australia to a unified place we all need to be in it together, and the way to do this is through the

development, extension and marketing outcomes.
