Leslie Hoy – Rand Water
Water use and water conservation have had an effect on our industry for many decades and will continue to do so as water accessibility stays on the countries agenda. SANA has had an ally for many years helping us and guiding us through this. His papers on water issues have been presented at our conventions and through the working for water campaigns he has supported GCA with information and in that, teaching us how to make being water wise second nature to us and in turn assisting the greater gardening community. His knowledge and passion for water conservation has been invaluable as we first encountered Biodiversity and invasives with legislation in our industry. He continues to build the relationship and with his latest project the Hydro-zoning of plants he is adding more benefits to our industry for years to come. The man who once famously said his job is to make us use less of what he is selling.
The Service award for 2020 recognises his commitment and enthusiasm and carries with it our appreciation for being part of our industry.
