How Can I Start Working in Horticulture?
Following a career in horticulture goes beyond growing and harvesting, and there are a range of diverse working opportunities in Australia. Are you more interested in the science behind plant cultivation and propagation, or would you prefer a more hands-on role amongst nature?
A budding career in horticulture could allow you to branch out in many different directions.
To work across the fresh produce sector, you will need to be able to deal with the physical demands of the role (such as working on your feet, heavy lifting and working outdoors in different climates) and also have a reliable, enthusiastic attitude.
