Celebrate Women in Horticulture, May 2017

EWHA had much to celebrate on Friday night 26th May, as women from all over Melbourne gathered at the Southbank apartment of our Patron, Dawn Fleming, for a night of food, wine, music and good company.

Women from many corners of the horticulture industry came together to network, meet new friends and hear the inspiring story of our 2016 Dawn Fleming Student Scholarship winner, Teagan Alexander.  Teagan travelled from Katherine in the Northern Territory to share her energy, confidence and ambition as she described how, whilst studying horticulture AND a law degree, she manages to work full-time with the Department of Primary Industries plus run a beef cattle herd and do community work with the CWA!  Her strength and determination has inspired us all!

Once again a successful evening where food was provided by Crave Catering, music by cellist Caerwen Martin and Evening Star led by Kate Vigo.

At the end of the night our guests were sent on their way with a generous goodie bag of products with compliments from one of the evening’s sponsors, Seasol.
