Field Placement

To gain further practical horticulture experience under the supervision of industry professionals, students participate in a field placement in a professional horticulture environment. Under the guidance of college staff, students pursue appropriate placement opportunities from a variety of approved enterprises including garden centres, nurseries and greenhouses, horticulture and agriculture research companies, farming operations, urban ecosystems, plant retailers, landscape operations or other locations offering an appropriate horticulture experience. Eligibility for field placement is dependent upon successful completion of all prerequisite program courses, completed placement paperwork and the permission of the program team/ student advisor. This is an unpaid placement and students are responsible for transportation to and from their placement site and any additional costs required by the placement employer.
