A bumper episode recorded live at The Landscape Show 2022!
Chris and Tyson kick off the session with Jason Banks from This Is A Conversation Starter (TIACS). They discuss how TIACS was founded by the founders of social enterprise, Trademutt, and how the initiative is providing mental health support to tradies and their families across Australia. They also chat with Russ Sweetman of Maroondah Landscapes and LVML CEO Megan Flower about the upcoming launch of LVML's wellness initiatives for members.
Next, they chat with Darren Free, LVML's Membership Officer, Ian Barker and Russ Sweetman about the extensive benefits of being an LVML member.
Finally, Chris, Tyson and Megan are joined by landscaping apprentices Dara and Breanna to talk about the representation of women in trades, and how they're keen to encourage young women to take up a landscaping apprenticeship.
