“Tony has been recognized as a stalwart in the greenhouse industry and worked diligently for the past 14 years as
an advocate through the production of the Ontario Greenhouse Growers’
Directory and Buyers’ Guide and other promotional activities on behalf
of the Ontario greenhouse industry,” notes NEDC executive director
Patrick Gedge.

“In recognition of his contribution to a growing sector in the Ontario
agricultural economy, we dedicate this next edition to Tony Thompson.”

Some 7,500 copies of the directory are circulated throughout North
America each year. During this transition period, NEDC greenhouse
program coordinator Cindy Rose has assumed responsibility for the
publication, along with industry liaison. “Many of you will recognize
Cindy as a co-worker who has worked actively along with Tony for the
past few years on important research projects and promotion and
marketing initiatives within the greenhouse sector,” says Gedge.
“Future accomplishments through this marketing program will, as always,
be dependent upon the active participation of growers and suppliers on
projects launched by the Niagara Economic Development Corporation,”
says Gedge.  The 2008 directory will be ready early
in the new year.
