"Gardening is a fundamental part of how we nurture our planet. It affects our eco-systems, our food chains, our economies, our education and our personal wellbeing. Let’s not belittle that. You would not see a report presented to Government from any other industry with an opening gambit that it’s ‘the best job in the world’ Because it clearly isn’t. That’s a somewhat ridiculous, subjective statement. I realise this is a ‘Forward’ but first impressions count. This is about the brand of gardening. Gardening is an increasingly important job in my opinion, for a multitude of reasons, and it deserves to be analysed and lobbied with the same intellectual prowess as is driving and influencing other industries."
