What is the concept of GardenER?
The idea is to connect people that garden, either professionally or as a hobby, as well as linking garden owners to nurseries and landscapers.
By doing this, the aim is to :
- create ways for people to be more proactive in visiting their local nurseries, either in person or online.
- open up communications between the people and the industry, especially on social platforms such as WhatsApp.
- educate and provide regular training for both staff and members of the public, to keep up-to-date with the industry and receive professional advice.
- establish relationships between the public, nurseries and landscapers.
