Clive Blazey Awarded AM

Congratulations to our co-founder, Clive Blazey who was made a Member of the Order of Australia in the 2019 Queen's Birthday Honour's list for his 'significant service to horticulture, to conservation and to the community'.

The Diggers team is delighted that Clive has been recognised for his work over the past 40 years in organic gardening, seed saving, introducing heirloom seeds to Australian gardeners and being a tireless advocate for conservation and the environment.

The Blazey family's establishment of the Diggers Foundation in 2011 will ensure that this important work continues well into the future.

Clive states 'It’s so exciting for us gardeners to get public recognition for passionately linking gardening with the preservation of our environment'.

 Long live subversive gardening!
