officially launches today - a comprehensive re-design of the Vineland Research
and Innovation Centre website serving as a one-stop, interactive resource for
the horticulture and floriculture industries and featuring the new Vineland
    "Innovation happens when people are free to interact with their peers,
share knowledge and excellence in an open and collaborate forum," said Dr. Jim
Brandle, CEO, Vineland Research and Innovation Centre. "Not only does the
Vineland Research and Innovation Centre foster this kind of entrepreneurial
spirit, but so too does Virtual Vineland through the introduction of our new
blog and other interactive features on our new website. Guests are welcome to
interact with our scientists, industry professionals and some of Ontario's
finest master gardeners among others."
    Focusing on Vineland's three areas of excellence: Research, Business and
Destination, Virtual Vineland offers:

    -   Industry-driven, leading-edge research
    -   A repository for horticulture resources
    -   An all-inclusive calendar outlining horticulture events and
        happenings across the country and around the world
    -   Information on how to become a part of the Vineland Vision
    -   Details on Vineland as a science and leisure destination
    -   A forum for two-way communication with the new Vineland Blog

    With its blog, Vineland hopes to provide help, guidance and something a
little more than simply gardening tips. It aims to engage and inform through
its authors on topics from what's new in horticulture science, the science of
gardening or simply the mere pleasure of it, to what's new at the Vineland
Research and Innovation Centre. The blog will include anything and everything
from news, images, videos and interesting conversations taking place around
the globe relating to horticulture. It will also be introducing some guest
bloggers from time to time.
    "We're very pleased to be launching Virtual Vineland today. It offers the
industry an easy-to-use, interactive and informative place to find the latest
buzz surrounding horticulture science," said Darlene Webb, director public
relations and communications for Vineland Research and Innovation Centre. "But
it's not just our content that's going to make this site really interesting -
it's going to be our visitors' experiences, ideas, feedback and useful tips.
So we encourage you to get involved and leave your comments. We also wish to
thank the team of authors on this site who are volunteering their time to help
keep us informed in an engaging and entertaining way."
