Roots into Horticulture
Join us for an afternoon of talks and discussion with a range of guest speakers within horticulture, set within the grounds of historic Hever Castle & Gardens.
Hear from a respected panel of experts who will show you how to take the right steps forward and establish a successful career in horticulture. Learn about a wide range of career paths within this industry and meet horticulture professionals who can help galvanise your career.
The event also presents a great opportunity for networking for horticulture students, professionals and anyone considering a move into the sector.
