The luck of the Irish shines on Daniel

Barossa Nursery’s Daniel Bartsch has been chosen as one of only two Australian Young Leader winners in the International Garden Centre Association
Scholarship Programme for 2014.

Awarded by the Garden Centre’s Association of Australia, Daniel will attend the 56th International Garden Centre Congress in Ireland this August.

Receiving the news last Wednesday, the 33 year old described the process which led him to the win.

“Entry required a written submission and all applicants had to be under 40 years of age. The judge was looking for young leaders in our industry and took into account industry involvement,” he said.

Daniel attended the Nursery Industry Conference at the Gold Coast back in 2012 and next week will attend the one in Sydney. Judges saw this as
further indication of Daniel’s commitment and passion for the industry and decided to send him on a once in a life time study trip to Ireland.
