TRAINING

Horticulture Training at Belize Botanic Gardens is a 10-week course comprised of mornings in the classroom learning to about various plants, how to identify them, where and when to plant them and after-

noons doing practical training in plant ID, propagation, grafting, pruning, weeding, watering, landscape design –and more. On The Job Training (OJT) is a 12-week course of practical train-

ing which teaches students all of the necessary skills to obtain a job as a gardener. A number of our students have started their own nursery and lawn care businesses so there is opportunity for entrepreneurs.

With the growth of the tourism industry in Belize hotel owners and other businesses are requiring skilled gardeners to help maintain their grounds so this job market is wideopen for the dedicated individual. We have trained both men and women from youths as young as 16 to mature people in their 40’s and 50’s. The main requirement is a love for gardening and the wish to become employed!
