Congratulations to Wes Fleming who was awarded a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia in the 2015 Australia Day Honour Roll.
Landscaping Victoria (LV) would like to congratulate Wes Fleming on being awarded a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia in the 2015 Australia Day Honour Roll. Wes received the medal for service to the horticultural industry, and to landscape architecture.
The Managing Director of Fleming's Nurseries is a long-standing friend of LV, and has been a member for 14 years. The prestigious OAM award is the latest on a long list of accolades, and highlights the national and formal recognition for Wes and the other recipients on the Honour List, who have made a significant difference to their communities.
A passionate ambassador for the horticultural industry, Wes is a third generation horticulturalist who is unwaveringly passionate about what he does, and his work extends far beyond his nursery's walls. As well as being a horticulturalist, Wes is an ambassador, a sponsor, a founder and was even a judge in last year's Victorian Landscape Awards after being an Award of Merit recipient the previous year.
His highest personal accolade is undoubtedly winning Gold and Best in Show at the Chelsea Flower and Garden Show in 2013. However, Wes believes that his greatest triumph up until this point has been demonstrating to the horticultural industry, and the world, that the Australian horticultural industry is among the best - if not the best - in the world.
On behalf of LV members, our partners, and the wider landscaping community, congratulations to Wes and all of those who have supported him along the way.
Wes is a regular guest blogger on the Outdoor Design Source website – you can read his blogs here.
