Environment Minister to address Cultivating Retail audience

Rebecca Pow MP, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) Parliamentary Under-Secretary for the Environment, will address the garden industry at the Cultivating Retail conference on 19 November at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.


With the conference theme of ‘creating a sustainable future for the garden industry’, Rebecca’s involvement will enable members to hear directly from Government on the 25 Year Environment Plan, highlighting how the garden industry can contribute in a positive way.


Rebecca Pow, who has been MP for Taunton Deane since 2015, took up the role of Parliamentary Under-Secretary for the Environment in September after previously serving as a Minister at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.


She has also held parliamentary private secretary roles with the Department for Communities and Local Government and DEFRA, as well as playing an active role in several environment focussed committees.


Before her political career Rebecca worked as a journalist specialising in environment, farming and gardening matters. Her responsibilities at DEFRA include the Environment Bill, the 25 Year Environment Plan and resource and environment management.


HTA Chairman James Barnes comments, “A great advocate of the benefit of plants and gardening we are delighted to be able to welcome Rebecca Pow to Cultivating Retail. Rebecca is the latest high-profile speaker to join the first-class Cultivating Retail programme which includes former Tesco CEO Sir Terry Leahy and Just Eat Chief Operating Officer Graham Corfield.”


A milestone event in the horticulture calendar Cultivating Retail provides a unique opportunity to network with industry leaders and peers.
