The sector extends across Australia, from regional and remote areas right into people’s backyards.
The Agriculture industry includes livestock farmers, dairy farmers, and fruit and grain growers.
Horticulture employers operate in gardening and landscape businesses, nursery production, turf growing and floriculture, parks and gardens operations, and the environmental sector.
There are 22,000 people working in Parks and Gardens Operations. This category includes those working in nature reserves and conservation parks.
Traineeship and apprenticeship commencements are good in Agriculture and Horticulture sectors but low in the Conservation and Land Management sector due to the small size of the workforce and the large ‘army’ of volunteers who work in the sector.
