We live in a world that's increasingly urbanised. Our cities keep growing and our green spaces need to grow with them. Maintaining and improving vegetation in our cities will provide the social, environmental, economic and health benefits that keep our neighbourhoods liveable.

Melbourne, like all cities around the world, needs people to design, manage and advocate for greater urban greening and the importance of these green spaces.

We're working alongside industry and government to produce urban horticulturists with these necessary skills, and a passion for creativity and sustainability.
