Work Experience – Horticultural

Students doing Ag Science at Waite have to do work experience as part of their degrees.

We have two lovely hardworking Chinese students who both are keen on horticulture. So keen, they are volunteering in the Urrbrae House gardens and Arboretum to get valuable experience.

Jerry/Qili and Amber/Luixian are looking for any kind of Horticultural work, unpaid is ok, they just need training!  For at least until June, they are available Saturday to Monday.  Their English is good enough, and they follow instructions!

Would any members be able to suggest any avenues / assist in helping them to find some work experience?
