We are delighted to announce the establishment of the Carol Fraser Industry Training Award (Fraser Award) in memory of Carol Fraser who, as many of you will know, played an extremely active role in industry training and the professional development of plant producers.
Carol, who founded Growing Spectrum with her husband Peter, raised the profile of skills and training in an era when there was little interest or investment in industry training from government or the wider horticulture industry.
This award, supported by the Fraser family, will continue Carol’s educational legacy through its support of those outstanding individuals who have a passion for plants, for training and education, and for our industry.
We are currently finalising the nomination form in preparation for nominations opening on July 1. In the meantime, have a think about who you might want to nominate from your organisation. We are looking for the plant production leaders and mentors of tomorrow.
