Water Conservation course prototype... first module passed!

Posted by on in News & Views

watersprinklerI took part in the Certificate in Water Conservation prototype e-learning course last night on behalf of the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA). The first module open and available to take part in was 'Planning the Site'. After completing the course we had to give feedback so they can fix any glitches and make improvements before they role it out to other Horticulturists.

It looked at elements that can have a bearing on the site for example, average rainfall for the area and how to conserve that or manage excess. It was a great memory jog and I learnt a few things too which I will certainly use in the planning stage of garden designs going forward.

I'm happy to say I passed the first module and I'm hoping that we'll have the opportunity to take the other three in the near future.
