Warm greetings go to all our stakeholders. This includes our regular overseas and local suppliers, over 50 Dealers, over 15 System Promoting Officers representing regional markets, and over 2,300 CGF –(Citigardens Forum) Members.
I am happy to note that over the past 16 years, Citigardens has progressed and expanded in the right direction. Although Micro-irrigation has been the major activity of Citigardens,the demand for micro irrigation usually drops during rainy season and the demand for Protected Agriculture Technology rises. This has paved the way for interest in cultivating inside poly- tunnels. Therefore we can assure that Citigardens is very well equipped to provide the supplies and services to cater to all seasons. In addition to the agriculture sector we also provide accessories to the Aqua-culture industry and also have ventures in to Eco Friendly Biological Solutions for pressing issues in waste management and odour treatment.
Our head office in Dehiwala, Colombo has established contacts and distribution network to any part of the country within 2 days. In addition we have 3 branch offices strategically located in Dambulla, Keppetipola and Pettah to cover the regional markets. Each branch has a marketing office and storage facilities to serve the customers efficiently and timely.
Citigardens is the only business institute to conduct a structured training programme through one day workshops promoting Micro-irrigation and Protected Agriculture Technology. This includes both class room and field training sessions. Many students, teachers, farmers, and officers attached to Government Departments and NGOs have benefited from this training programme.
We work closely with government departments, non-governmental organizations, UN agencies such as the FAO, UNDP and other international NGOs like US Aid, World Vision and Save the Children.
New opportunities are open for Citigardens to engage in environmental tree planting, reforestation and community farms etc. as joint venture projects. Citigardens has a vision for 2020 to establish sustainable projects to bring value to nation building.
We request you to join us in our vision to bring about a Cleaner, Greener, Productive and Pleasant Environment for all to enjoy.
