Bord na Móna launches it’s growing media academy at Glee 2018

This new, educational initiative is designed to strengthen retailers’ understanding of the Bord na Móna Growise range of products. Join a journey of discovery with Bord na Móna at Glee, and uncover the key ingredients that make up its award-winning products, and their technical significance.

The Growing Media Academy will champion five of the core ingredients that go into the Bord na Móna Growise growing media range – peat, coir, green compost, composted bark and wood fibre – helping retail staff to better understand the natural properties and benefits of each. Retailers will also be introduced to the Little Book of Ingredients: the ultimate handbook and training tool for understanding Bord na Móna’s approach to high-quality, responsibly-sourced products.
