IoH adopts new 'unifying' slogan

The Institute of Horticulture (IoH) is to adopt a new strap line - Uniting a Growing Profession - to represent a "rallying cry" for the industry.

President Dr Heather Barrett-Mold said: "'Uniting a Growing Profession' is much more than a strap line or a slogan. It underlines the key objective of IoH over the next few years - to unify."

Council member Steve Dowbiggin said previously troubled branches such as the South West were now stronger than ever.

A meeting of trustees and other advisers last week decided to:

  •  appoint a web and membership co-ordinator in each branch;
  •  support an internet-based network for heads of horticulture at land-based colleges;
  •  become a partner in the Grow initiative;
  •  hold a national conference on value-added parts of horticulture;
  •  pilot a new grade of membership called e-affiliate member;
  •  relocate to Capel Manor College.
