Alex Buckley has been selected as one of Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation.
Our very own Alex has been selected as one of Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation, class of 2018.
The award was initially launched by Pro Landscaper to help younger people in the industry gain recognition and celebrate their achievements and the accolade is now recognised throughout the industry.
Alex has been with Provender Nurseries for 3.5 years and has worked her way up to becoming the plant area supervisor of small stock on the nursery now managing a small team. Since becoming supervisor Alex has implemented a stock rotation system on the plant beds resulting in lower plant wastage. Earlier this year Alex was also selected to go to Denmark on a staff exchange.
Alex will be awarded along with the other 29 winners at Futurescapes in November. Alex says of her award ‘ I am bowled over with the selection and look forward to meeting my fellow 30 Under 30’s’.
Richard McKenna says’ The fact that Alex has been recognised and selected as one of the 30 Under 30: The Next Generation is a huge bonus to Alex personally and to Provender Nurseries as a business. We work hard on staff development and it has been fantastic to watch Alex grow (!) and for her efforts to be rewarded in such a way’.
