Amid a resurgence of interest in food, gardening and plants, how can different groups in horticulture best highlight careers in this sector?

In our Growing Horticulture roundtable series, we spoke with growers, educators and sector partners about the challenges and opportunities faced by Canadian horticulture when it comes to hiring and retaining new employees.

Now, for this special In the Spotlight video, learn what our roundtable sponsor, A.M.A. Horticulture, does to hire and engage new employees, what skills and traits are important to them, and their thoughts on reaching beyond horticulture to attract new talent. Featuring co-owner, Connie Bradt, as well as marketing and communications manager, Elise Johnson.

Don’t miss parts 1 and 2 of the roundtable, as growers, educators and sector representatives discuss the status of horticultural labour in Canada as well as their challenges in hiring, training and retaining skilled talent.
