The Garden Centre Association (GCA) is hosting two webinars for its members on sustainability and catering this month (July 2022).
The first webinar on July 20 will be to discuss challenges and the impact the past two years have had on restaurants, and the second on July 27 will aim to find out what centers are doing to reduce carbon emissions.
Iain Wylie, GCA Chief Executive, said: "Our virtual events have proven successful in the past, so we have decided to gather our members together virtually once again to discuss these two hot topics.
"The first webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 20 at 10 am. We will have a panel of garden center owners, directors, and managers, all with different catering operations, including self-service, counter or table service, together with Chris Brown of Turpin Smale, which is a UK catering consultancy, who will give a wider perspective on the hospitality industry.
"We will also discuss the challenges ahead and the impact the past two years have had on our members' restaurants, and how this is now influencing decisions for the future."
"The second webinar on Wednesday, July 27 at 3 pm will be about sustainability. As an Association, we have been asking all of our members to nominate a Sustainability Champion, and during the webinar, we will be finding out what our members are doing and what needs or can be done as we face the challenge of reducing our carbon emissions. It looks set to be an interesting webinar with lots to discuss."
"Our members will receive invitations to join the webinars, and they can contact us via email@example.com to receive a link."
