Launch of Young People in Horticulture Association
Young People in Horticulture Association (YPHA), a group designed to bring together the under 35s of ornamental horticulture to facilitate collaboration, education and innovation, has been launched.
The group will maintain regular contact through social media, but also aim to arrange a select number of events throughout the year- each of which will be structured to be enjoyable yet educational.
Each person who joins the group will develop their own set of industry contacts, and will have the opportunity to share thoughts and inspiration with likeminded individuals. The group’s primary focus will be to consider how the industry might evolve to appeal to a younger demographic than has previously been the case- both in terms of future horticultural employees and future garden centre customers.
