The Nurs­ery and Gar­den In­dus­try Vic­to­ria (NGIV) re­cently pre­sented ABC Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia pre­sen­ter Jane Ed­man­son with the Pres­i­dent’s Dis­tin­guished Ser­vice Award. The NGIV says this award “recog­nises an in­di­vid­ual‡who has made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the as­so­ci­a­tion and the in­dus­try over an ex­tended pe­riod of time, and has done so freely, will­ingly and self­lessly, re­peat­edly go­ing that ex­tra mile.” At the cer­e­mony, pres­i­dent Paul Boland ( above) said, “Jane has been in­volved in hor­ti­cul­ture for more than 40 years, work­ing in prop­a­ga­tion, grow­ing plants, own­ing and manag­ing a re­tail nurs­ery along with tele­vi­sion, ra­dio and other me­dia com­mit­ments. She has been a fan­tas­tic con­trib­u­tor to our won­der­ful in­dus­try and has given so much for so long.” Jane has been an in­valu­able con­trib­u­tor to this mag­a­zine since its in­cep­tion.
