Helping Illawarra businesses to develop and grow sustainably

Economic Gardening business development program - Postponed

The Economic Gardening business development program, scheduled to begin on 24 March, has been postponed.

This decision has been made in the interests of the health and wellbeing of participants, with respect to the social distancing recommendations of health officials which are required as a result of the Covid-19 virus.

The program will be re-scheduled to later in 2020, once the dangers of the Covid-19 virus have passed.
