The Masterclass was a fantastic way for me to develop new skills whilst networking and meeting growers from all over the country. Whilst we all grew different crops, we faced the same issues and by working together, not only did we help each other solve problems, we developed life-long friendships— JOSH MAUNDER, ZAPPALA TROPICALS, QLD
The Masterclass in Hort Business has definitely given my career a leg up. This course has allowed me to find a new level of understanding when it comes to both business and the everyday needs of running an intensive soft fruit farm— EMMA SUTHERLAND, BURLINGTON BERRIES, TAS
The learnings from the Masterclass have been invaluable for myself within our business Dicky Bill Farming. The skills learnt through the Masterclass are very applicable to my role and now influence a lot of the decisions I make on a day to day basis. I highly recommend the course— BETH COTTERILL, DICKY BILL FARMING, VIC
"The Horticultural Masterclass was hyper relevant to our enterprise. It created the space and the skills to look beyond the farm gate, giving us insights in the best business practices being employed in Australian horticulture."
"Completing the Masterclass and making friends with 28 other enterprising horticulturalists from across Australia was and remains a real bonus."— SALLY DAKIS, RICHMOND CHERRIES, TAS

Hear what previous participants have to say about the course
10 months ago I saw myself primarily as just a farmer, however now I am a risk assessor and manager, supply chain coordinator and business man. I have learnt the basics of business… This Masterclass is for farmers who want to improve their business, to understand not just why you grow the product but also the business behind it.— Lachlan Moncreiff, scholarship recipient and graduate 2017.
There are a lot of people involved in the horticultural industries who understand a lot about production but don't understand a lot about beyond the farm gate and opportunities for marketing and value-adding. I think that's where the course is fantastic.— Tim Reid, Managing Director of Reid Fruits
