On the 15th November 2018 a group of IGA members gathered to honour long standing committee member, Rolf Hagen with a lifetime achievement award. The event was held at Makaranga Garden Lodge in Kloof.
Rolf was one of the founding member of the then Tunnel Growers Association in early 1980, which eventually became the IGA. Rolf was one of the biggest proponents of organic agriculture and also a pioneer in the use of bark based mixes for growing medium in horticulture.
Rolf recently resigned from the IGA committee, but he will remain an honorary member and always remembered for his invaluable contributions to Intensive Growing in South Africa.
