The Australian Institute of Horticulture has signed its third successive two-year collaborative agreement to work with the National Parks Board Singapore and the Centre for Urban Greenery and Ecology. It also signed its first agreement with the Landscape Industries Association (Singapore).
AIH National President, Kim Morris, says that signing an official Memorandum of Collaboration with such bodies is an important step towards putting Australian horticulture on the international radar.
“We all need to work together to support and raise the profile of horticulture across Australasia,” says Kim.
The AIH provides accreditation for Singapore’s successful Certified Practising Horticulturalists’’ program. Participants complete a two-week-long intensive course to receive a certification and with that international endorsement of their skills by AIH.
In another initiative, the AIH is searching for a member who is keen to participate in the first professional exchange with its Singapore partners.
“We are also hoping to set up Institute groups in Singapore soon and Hong Kong in the future,” Kim says.
