The Landscaping trade at Alpha is led by instructor Akin Housen and is a stepping stone to teamwork, employment, certification and training in Basic Horticulture. The coursework is divided into three parts: Practical Skill, Practical and Theoretical Knowledge and the class participates in two field trips to private gardens in and outside of Kingston. Graduates of Alpha’s landscaping program are able to demonstrate proper safety and a useful knowledge of soils and soil treatments. Students learn best practices in plant farming and maintenance as well as the business of landscaping. Special thanks to a great corporate citizen, Camcorp Industrial Ltd, for donating the overalls to the Landscaping program!
