Hosted on the second day of LANDSCAPE – The Industry Trade Show, the Discovery Day aims to promote different career paths in the industry and to give those just starting out an insight into the opportunities available and to ask questions to those who have done it all before!
The Discovery Day has been introduced to inspire students and newcomers to the industry and provide an insight into what it takes to work in the world of landscaping. Find out more about being a landscape architect, a garden designer, a television presenter, a grower, a contractor, a horticulturalist and more.
Short and incisive, the two panel sessions will be hosted by Adam Stoter from The Royal Parks Guild and Mollie Higginson from YPHA – Young People in Horticulture Association. The day will provide the opportunity to listen to industry professionals working at the top of their game being interviewed about how they got to where they are today, advice from their own experience and the chance to ask your own questions too. Panellists include:
Andrew Fisher Tomlin – London College of Garden Design
Chris Hull – Greenbook Landscape Design
Jasmine Williamson – Pegasus Group

Colleges and universities are welcomed and encouraged to extend the invite to their students and graduates.
