Following our successful inaugural Brisbane Congress in 2013, AIH is presenting the second in the series of Horticultural Workshop based Congress, Sydney on the 6th-7th November, 2014 at the Sirius Room within Novotel Brighton Hotel, Grand Parade Brighton, Sydney.

The Congress is designed to attract delegates from varying sectors of horticulture including consultants, landscape architects, designers, construction, arboriculture, education, turf, parks and gardens, production and the natural resource fields of expertise.

Being held on the shores of Botany Bay – the landscape represents the natural and built environments with water sports as an important element. The region reflects the brief for the speaker series and accompanying hands on workshops.

The Congress will run over two days and be presented by respected horticulturists.

The workshops will be integrated with hands on experiences and under the concept of applying social, environmental, economical and cultural (SEEC) accountability to Scaping Nature.

The Congress will address the following:

  • Plant Health and Diversity in the Urban Environment
  • Selection and Management of Soil Health in Urban Landscapes
  • Plant selection – Right Plant – Right Place – Right Purpose – Right Management
  • Meeting community expectations through horticultural knowledge, innovation & practices of indigenous & local communities
  • Accountability as Professionals – Meeting the expectations of people and their community through landscapes.
