Congress 2020 cancelled due to COVID-19 

The board of CEJH and the organizers in Germany have decided to cancel the CEJH congress 2020 in Essen. This is due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the great uncertainty about what it will be like this summer. However, we are happy to announce that the congress in Essen is rescheduled to 2021.

This year’s general meeting will be carried out through a conference call on the 26th of July at 14:00. Anyone willing to attend can send a request to cejh.board(at)outlook.com, but please appoint at least one person for each member nation and send us who that will be until the 1st of June.

We are very sad about the cancelation but we hope you agree that safety comes first.

We had a great time and learned very much from our visit to the Baltic countries this July. Thanks to the staff at Bulduri Horticultural School in Latvia and the Palusalu family in Estonia we experienced gardens, landscapes, culture and companies with lots of beauty and innovation. Take a look at the inspiring photoreport here (link).

Sum up of the congress in Malmö 2018

The 59th CEJH congress was held in Sweden 22-28 of August, 2018. The event attracted 58 young horticulturists from eight different countries to the region of Skåne and the city of Malmö. It was a week with really hot weather pushing 30 degrees some days. The programme consisted of visits to nurseries, roof gardens, an apple farm, greenhouse production, landscapers and more. A congress tree was planted at the Swedish University of Agriculture in Alnarp. We thank all sponsors and participants!
