A current apprentice, Justin Vickery provides this insight
Landscape Horticulture Training Institute is such a rewarding and positive environment. You are surrounded by fellow students ,from all areas of our industry, who are interested in learning about horticulture and are highly motivated in bettering the industry's that we represent. The teachers are some of the most knowledgeable individuals in New Brunswick and have a passion for sharing that knowledge with those who wish to learn.
Topics covered by the instructors include everything from soil and plant sciences, how to properly plant bulbs, trees, and grasses, installation of hardscape such as brick and concrete, all the way to outdoor lighting and irrigation. The small class sizes allow for group and class discussions so that the instructors can make sure each student fully understands the programs content.
One of the best parts about LHTI is the community you become a part of. By attending the school I was made aware of opportunities and events that were available to myself and others with my interests. Even though the course is only a 4 year program I feel as if it has introduced me to a community that I will be a part of for many years to come.
