“I had a fantastic time working with Shane, the work experience program that Space Plants has put in place is not only really informative and hands on- it’s also fun. If you are a fellow Horticulture student I would definitely recommend doing some work experience with Space Plants. The whole business has an extremely ‘green’ outlook and if you’re anything like me, you will really enjoy being surrounded by plants everyday. Bringing plants into sterile urban environments and maintaining green walls in office and school spaces is also really rewarding and will have you feeling good about the work you are doing”.
