"When I finished my Certificate II in Horticulture, I became a part of an enterprise
market garden and successfully produce vegetables for local charities and businesses. I also went on to teach the Introduction to Horticulture course. Through all of those amazing opportunities on offer at BCAL I was able to get a full time job as a horticulturalist.".
