Jonathan Ward of Ginger Horticulture was recently approached by the Institute of Horticulture to help gather photographic material for an upcoming push on their new initiative, Grow Careers. Grow Careers is the starting point for people to find out more and to look for jobs if they’re interested in a career in horticulture.
Walberton Nursery was asked by Jonathan to take part in a photo shoot to enable him to build up a portfolio of material for Grow Careers to use in 2014 to try and attract more young people into Horticulture. With 1/2 of Walberton Nursery’s current workforce having started with the company when they were under the age of 30 (more than 1/2 of whom were completely new to horticulture as a career) and such a varied range of areas in which to work Walberton was the ideal place to come!
Jonathan’s pictures included Kirstie, 23, working in the Laboratory, nurturing and micro-propagating young plant material. Kamila, 24, on the other hand is pictured setting newly potted lavenders down in the Propagation House.
