GrowSmart Training is a not for profit organisation that is part of the Riverland Horticultural Council Inc. Our governing committee members represent key horticultural industries of our region encompassing value to the national economy exceeding $900 million annually. We’re passionate about providing training that supports the objectives of each industry we deliver to.
For Production Horticulture businesses, our training aims to optimise their investment in human resources and the crops, infrastructure and technology they depend on. The skills we develop in people of our region allows us to produce high quality food and wine products that are sort after both domestically and in export markets around the world.
Training and personal development is a vital part of optimising resource investment. Equipping people with skills and pathways for career development ensures our industries remain sustainable in terms of having the right people ready to work. This delivers sustainability both in terms of profit and in how we care for our environment to optimally use energy, water, soil and wider environment that hosts our farming industries.
The GrowSmart Training focus in Conservation and Land Management is broader than delivering training; we work with our partners and clients to enhance their business and provide clear and secure career pathways in tourism, research, education and practical conservation work. Interest in Conservation and Land Management is growing as society increasingly recognises the intrinsic value of our natural environment. There is so much to learn.
