Essential Horticulture Skills Program

Course Overview

This is our horticultural industry skill set that is an entry level program for students to learn and grow their knowledge and skills in the horticulture industry. It offers students an opportunity to build their practical skills because it is HANDS ON.

Many of our past students have been interested in areas such as land care, garden maintenance and plants in general. During the year there are a great variety of opportunities for employment in garden maintenance. Each unit is a horticulture-based workshop that gives students knowledge and experience, as well as a competitive edge in the field!
