Monday 11th August, in the presence of our President Michael D. Higgins, I was a guest of Bord Bia at the GALA dinner for The International Garden Centre Congress 2014 at The Mansion House Dublin. And with over 200 delegates from 22 countries the 56th congress – an independent not for profit organization committed to the continuous improvement of the garden centre industry worldwide, if you must ask – meeting takes place in Ireland this week; and with the help of the team at Bord Bia, The Sodshow should have some interviews and what not over the next few weeks and days to give you a taster of some of the voices who have travelled across for the weeks events.
I am due to meet with the congress again on Thursday August 14th, again as Bord Bia’s guest – cheers lads. Of note, I should add if you did have a guest coming across to Ireland the IGCA itinerary for the group to see really does hold some of Irelands finest assets. Thursday, Aug 14 2014 of which holds a full day which takes in the following:
- Powerscourt Garden Centre & Gardens, Wicklow
- O’Connor Nursery Gorey, Co. Wexford
