Plants and gardens are critical for the planet and the solution to many of today’s environmental problems. A career in horticulture has something to offer everyone at all levels and ability. Work in the industry can be technical and creative, encouraging the development of various skills, with advances in technology creating more opportunities. The two main areas are amenity and commercial horticulture. The grounds and facilities at Easton and Otley College provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about amenity horticulture and to work with the college’s extensive plants collections.
