IPPS Australia and IPPS Southern Africa have an established exchange program. The intention is to offer young horticulturists at the start of their career an opportunity to gain experience of a different plant production industry, and to build a better understanding of the host country.

The chosen candidate from South Africa will visit Australia for a period of about two weeks during May, where they will be hosted by the local nursery industry. He/She will attend the Australian Region annual conference and may be required to work in nurseries with Australian propagators as well as visit gardens and other places of botanical interest.

Do you know a young horticulturist between the ages of 19 and 30 with a passion for plant production? Nominate him/her now! Nominations must reach our office before 31 October!

The IPPS Southern Africa board will each year select and sponsor three top candidates from the CV's received to attend the regional annual conference during March the forthcoming year!
