If you like working outdoors, love variety and don't want to work in an office, this programme is for you, and offers skills to work outdoors while learning the feeling of accomplishment by growing things well.
You will learn about soils and how best to manage them to improve your growing, and how to identify and understand pests and diseases and their management.
We also have regular field trips to local growers to apply practical skills.
The Nelson programme is taught at the Richmond campus where this is an onsite garden, propagation house and amenity plantings.
The Marlborough programme is taught on the Budge Street campus where these is a shade house and a propagation house.
With the knowledge you learn on this programme, get work in the horticulture industry, go on to study at level 4 or you can put it into practice on your own land or business, if you are a small block owner.
