Welcome to Horticulture – The Next Generation

Horticulture Australia (now HIA) was driven by the competitive needs of Industry, has developed a leadership development program that will span all horticultural industries.

We started the Horticulture-Next Generation program in 2012 and it funding wound up in 2014. Over that period of 3 years, we had 95 horticulture managers and owners attend 4 days of intensive training, over 220 people completed online training modules and we had an additional 2300 attendees on our webinar program.

This innovative program used a combination of traditional face-to-face, web and social media technologies to extend the reach of the program beyond a core group of individual leaders to the wider horticultural industry.

We continue to work closely with horticulture businesses and industry groups to improve management, individual and business outcomes.
