CERTIFICATE II IN HORTICULTURE
COURSE CODE: AHC20416
Issuance of this qualification is awarded by Djarragun College RTO30166
Each week we spend time learning about plants in class. You will learn about weeds and how they are damaging bushland country, endangering ecosystems and crops, even sometimes they are just plain annoying like sensitive plant or (Pokey weed) that grows in our lawn areas and prickle our feet. The knowledge you will acquire from here is help you make decisions how we can control those weeds in the most appropriate way.
Best of all we get to spend time propagating and growing plants for the school in the nursery, watching them grow and looking after them each week.
We really look forward to being able to grow vegetables in the garden, learning about soil and how to grow healthy plants while we make the school a more attractive place to study and live.
Using the knowledge we learn in class’s and applying it in the schools nursery and gardens allows for real horticultural knowledge and skill building which could lead to work in a range of horticultural workplaces.
