The Vattakanal Conservation Trust is in the process of developing what might be called a business model. The idea is to develop a sales outlet that will generate income that will facilitate the aims of the Trust well into the 21st Century. Care of the Trusts unique and expanding collection of rare exotic plants which would form the backbone of the business now rests with its ageing founding members. We need a young person to assume this responsibility. A qualification in horticulture would be appropriate. More than that a passion for plants, their care and cultivation and the ability to train and motivate others is the first requirement. An interest in ecological restoration, the core activity of the Trust would also be required.
Tell us about yourself.
We would also welcome students of horticulture who are seeking internships.
