MWLP Business of the Month – November 2011

Nov 1, 2011    

Outstanding Business of the Month:  The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan

This spectacular garden opened to the public in 1988 as part of the NSW Bicentennial project.  It is the largest Botanic Garden in Australia comprising some 400 hectares.  Set within natural woodlands and grasslands the organisation focuses on the conservation of flora and fauna.

Dan Bishop, Manager Horticulture, is an enthusiastic supporter of the MWLP program offering Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Primary Industries as part of their HSC, the opportunity to get a taste of real working life.  Dan says “It’s important to give students these types of experiences whilst they are still at school so they can assess what’s ahead of them”.
