On our staff, we have 10 horticulture graduates and like every year we're hosting interns from colleges across the country. Several of our degreed horticulturists were previous interns including, Corey Petersen and David Grover.
Our Trade association hosts National Collegiate Landscape Competitionevery spring where we interview potential interns and graduates. Corey Petersen, Adam Flint, and David Grover attended this year's event at Alamance Community College in North Carolina in March. We also go on campus and several universities throughout the year, presenting to classes and working with professors to assist with industry perspective in their programs.
In our effort to be the most knowledgeable and capable landscape professionals, training our existing staff and recruiting form college programs is an essential part of our ongoing staff development program.
