Understanding population and social trends
Demographic and social trends within Australia continue to change. As a whole, the population is getting older and moving out from the bush to the coastal fringe, while world events and a growing economy have prompted significant social change. But what does all of this mean for the nursery and garden industry, and how can nursery businesses benefit? This Nursery Paper summarises population and social trend information presented by Bernard Salt, Partner with KPMG Australia, and Jem Wallis, Managing Director of Heartbeat, at the 2005 NGIA conference.
