HORTICULTURAL PRODUCTION for Indigenous learners
Assiniboine Community College is proud to partner with the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples to deliver a tuition-free Horticultural Production program.
The program will be delivered full-time at the Parkland campus in Dauphin starting on July 24, 2023.
Learn the totality of food production and focus your interests on three key sectors: fruits and vegetables, greenhouse production and nurseries. Students will gain hands-on experience in Dauphin’s newest greenhouse through collaboration with Vermillion Growers.
Create your own customized soil and compost. Grow unusual food plants such as fenugreek, Malabar spinach and Jamaican thyme. Diagnose and treat plant diseases. Improve drainage systems and learn how to increase food production via microclimate studies. Discover how the art of budding and grafting changes the face and function of trees.Indigenous learners (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) living off-reserve are welcome to apply to the program.
