Blazing a Trail for a Career in Horticulture9th November 2013 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
Quite rightly, the RHS is doing its best to enthuse school leavers to consider a career in horticulture. As part of their campaign they have made a series of short films by young people who are involved in some aspect of the business. They explain what they do, why they love it. They are part of a new wave of young gardeners who are far more entrepreneurial and career minded than was the case in the past. Yet 80% of secondary schoolteachers remain unaware of career opportunities in horticulture – which means that the majority of students are similarly uninformed. With any luck these films will help change a lot minds.
