SCGIA reaches beyond it’s own events. To bring a broader perspective to the green industry, SCGIA is a member of Trees SC (South Carolina’s urban forestry council), Palmetto Agri-Business Council, and Nursery and Landscape Executives of North America. We work closely with the South Carolina Department of Agriculture and Clemson University on a regular basis.

SCGIA has open lines of communication with the SC Department of Plant Industry and SC Department of Pesticide Regulations and other agencies that regulate our industry.

We like to include and highlight our members whenever possible in the events we sponsor. Whether it is having the Skillbuilder Training at a member nursery or seeking out members to help plan the annual conference educational program.

Our outreach to other associations, experts, and agencies allows SCGIA to bring the best services to our members and to direct members to the appropriate resources.
