Growing Horticulture: The ideal candidate

November 18, 2021
By Fruit & Vegetable and Greenhouse Canada


What do growers look for when hiring staff? How important are soft skills compared to technical skills? What role does formal education play, and what should be taught through real-life experience? 

In the third video of our Growing Horticulture roundtable series in conjunction with Greenhouse Canada, our grower, educator and industry partner panellists share their thoughts on the qualities that make up the ideal candidate, and how education and on-farm training play a part. 


Catch up on the first two videos in the series – an introduction to the panellists, and a look at some of the challenges they face – and stay tuned for Part 4: Opportunities, to be released Dec. 6. 

Thank you to A.M.A. Horticulture for sponsoring this roundtable discussion.
