New Zealand unemployment is currently at its lowest level since 2008. In some areas of the country there are very few people available for work, down to double digits, and this looks like it will continue for some time.
Horticulture New Zealand (HortNZ) is offering a new, $10,000 scholarship in 2020. The scholarship is available to people undertaking postgraduate study in horticulture or related fields.
This year, three grower elected Horticulture New Zealand directors will retire by rotation. Nominations are being sought from individual grower members, affiliated product groups, and affiliated grower associations for these three vacancies.
