Get Qualified NOW says Industry Expert

Now is the time to do high level Horticulture studies says Horticulture veteran of 40 plus years John Mason. Having recently attended industry events in Australia and internationally, he advises:
“Good top level Horticulturists are increasingly scarce. Most of todays courses are simply not what they once were. If you learn the right things to the right level, the work is there now and will be even greater in the future. I know employers in horticulture who are simply not filling jobs because they cannot get someone good enough for the position. I know good horticulturists who command over $150 per hour in fees, and have more work than they can handle.”
John Mason (FPLA, FIOH, FAIH) is a widely published Author and Principal of ACS Distance Education. Throughout his 40 plus years in the Horticulture industry he has worked as a Consultant, Parks Director, Landscaper and Educator, and is a widely respected authority on Horticulture.
