Horticulture

Studying horticulture and floristry at TAFE Queensland Gold Coast opens up so many opportunities working with plants, flowers, vegetables, fruit, trees and turf.

Horticulture courses will teach you all there is to know about plant care and landscape management, from planting, propagating and irrigating, to pruning, processing and fertilising. Climate change is increasingly becoming a significant topic for this sector.

An interest in the natural environment and a love for working outdoors are just some of the qualities that may attract you to a career in horticulture.

With conservation and environmental planning continuing to play an increasingly important role in our society, employment growth in this industry is expected.
