Founded in 1903, Nursery and Garden Industry Victoria (NGIV), is the peak industry body for the state’s horticultural sector. 

NGIV represents the interests of the Victorian horticulture industry. It is a sector worth over $1.6 billion that employs more than 11 000 people and engages with over 3000 stakeholders, ranging from small family-based operations to multinational organisations. A high percentage of our members are involved in production (turf and greenlife) and retail nurseries, while others are involved in horticulture-allied trades, botanic gardens, educational institutions and other not-for-profit organisations, including government-aligned green enterprises.

NGIV maintains strong connections with its members and the wider industry, and remains committed to the continued success of Victoria's horticulture industry.
