What's it all about?

Horticulture

Get your competitive spirit on! You'll be part of a team racing to locate and correctly identify (using your horticulture skills) rare trees and shrubs in the Hamilton Gardens. The winning team will win a prize.

Arboriculture

See the world from a different perspective. Experience life as an arborist and learn to climb trees safely, using the right equipment. If you have an adventurous spirit, love the great outdoors, and enjoy challenging yourself physically, arboriculture could be your future.

What to bring / wear?

Please bring appropriate clothing (e.g. skirts are not suitable for climbing), and closed in shoes (e.g. sneakers) that are suitable for climbing/orienteering.

As these activities have an outdoor element, please also bring a raincoat, water bottle and sun protection as necessary.

 

Experience both Horticulture & Arboriculture, and Landscape Taster Days!

Wintec’s Horticulture & Arboriculture Taster and Landscape Taster days run consecutively on Fridays throughout 2019. This provides students with the opportunity to experience all available pathways at our Hamilton Gardens Campus across two days.

For example: Horticulture & Arboriculture Taster Day will run on Friday 22nd March, then the Landscape Taster Day on the following Friday, being 29th March. There will be some dates that are more than a week apart due to public holidays and Wintec events.
