They certainly have the passion and ambition – and now, thanks to Australia’s very first Masterclass in Horticultural Business, they’ll have the business know-how. Developed by Hort Innovation with University of Tasmania, Lincoln University (NZ), and world-leader Wageningen (Netherlands), this 8-month course aims to address the industry’s need to foster young talent and cultivate entrepreneurial thinking in Australian horticulture. It has been created with the Leadership Fund, part of our new Strategic Co-Investment initiative, with a number of scholarships also being supported by Nursery and Vegetable levies.
The journey began last weekend in beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, and we were there to talk to the students, teachers and special industry guests. Meet them in this inspiring video below and share it from our official facebook page
