Teagasc College recently held a virtual event to promote its courses and studying for a qualification in Horticulture. College Principal John Mulhern, along with colleagues Louise Jones, Christopher Heavey, James Brady, and Paddy Smith gave presentations on the college courses and the student activities in the Horticultural College. This hour-long event was broadcast via Zoom. Attendees were able to participate in the Q&A session towards the end of the event.

This academic year, the college is operating a blended learning format whereby students take live lectures online and attend in small socially-distanced groups to the practical events in both the National Botanic Gardens and Teagasc Ashtown. Numbers participating in Horticulture courses at Teagasc College have risen this year and overall there is a high level of satisfaction among students in the courses they are following. Anyone interested in a career in Horticulture contact the college directly through the Teagasc website.
