A future in sustainability
Horticulture technicians can make a living in a wide variety of ways. You may work in the disciplines of plant propagation and production for a greenhouse or tree nursery -nurturing plants to be used in landscaping, food production, or sold in retail garden centers. You may also work on landscape maintenance or landscape construction crews for landscape contractors, lawn care service companies, botanical gardens, municipal park departments, golf courses, civil engineering firms, and natural resource management agencies. Work duties are typically out of doors and very hands-on. With time and experience, management and consulting opportunities within the field are possible. The work of a horticulture technician is truly a “green” career.
