There is still a huge demand for people who know the difference between weeds and plants and how to mow a lawn properly. In Australia a gardener can earn $35 or more per hr. Working just on Saturdays could add $280 or more to your weekly income. A great place to start is our Horticulture I course.



Bed & Breakfast in conservatory table setting Bed & Breakfast:
If you're in a region popular with tourists, and you have a spare room or two which is never used, why not make an income out of it? Our Bed and Breakfast Management course will get you started.

Mini Farming:
If you choose your crop well, it's amazing how much income can be derived from inside an average backyard (via a plant nursery, or cut flower, herb, berry, fruit and vegetable production) these can all be intensive and profitable on relatively small sites. Sell your own produce at markets or to a retailer.We have great short courses in all of the above areas:
