SASHS and ISHS hold combined Council meetings to strengthen existing relationships and forge new linkages.

The Southern African Society for Horticultural Science has close ties with the Council of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and regularly makes

contributions to ISHS Council meetings on matters close to all Southern African Horticulturists hearts. On 2 October 2009, the SASHS and ISHS Councils held a combined meeting to discuss a number of issues pertinent to horticulture in Southern Africa. After introductions all round, it was noted that there was a base of expertise and experience in the meeting room but all having one common outlook – a passion for Horticulture!

The ISHS Council looked forward to interacting with African and South African Horticulturists in the future especially with good attendance of delegates at the recently held 1st All Africa Horticulture Congress in Kenya. One of the highlights of the meeting was the fact that the ISHS was eager to support the 2nd Congress which is due to be held in South Africa in 2011!
