Nursery Masterclass Awards

By Australian Garden Council on November 23, 2017 in | comments

Ms Coutts says the initiative is very worthwhile to attract young, progressive university students into horticulture.
More than 50 leading interns will b e placed in horticultural businesses over the next five years to strengthen the industry and provide the next generation of employees.

“Our company’s managing director is a Nuffield Scholar and travelling overseas he saw the same thing again and again - an ageing industry that needs innovation and technology to supply a global population,” Ms Coutts said.

“As a young expanding company we are challenged in having more to do without necessarily having the resources to do it, so bringing in the right people in the right time frame is critical.”
