Student Focus

Jennika, Clarke Road

You wouldn’t know it after working beside her, but Jennika was an incredibly shy student when she first came to GHA. Slowly, she took on new challenges and gradually broke out of her shell to the point where she was able to assist in hosting a community event for 80 guests. Whether directing traffic, providing tours of the facility or handling operational responsibilities, she and her classmates completed three seasons of workshops to learn workplace skills incuding inventory management, production management and interpersonal skills. GHA gave her the tools to succeed in entrpreneurialism, financial literacy and collaboration. Your support helps to ensure more students can experience the business basics and hands-on learning environment that the Greenhouse provides.

What Our Clients Say

“What a fantastic way to meet future employment prospects in multiple fields of focus. We’re excited to meet the next generation of the region’s labour pool and discover what types of energy and skill sets we can cultivate for our own business needs.”

Dave Leff Owner/Manager, TLC Landscaping

“Sheridan Nurseries is recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers (2020) and is Canada’s largest, fully integrated garden centre, retailer and grower. We employ approximately 280 full-time employees, rising to around 1,000 each spring. This means we see thousands of resumes every year. Knowing that someone has had specific training that reflects our environment is extremely valuable to us. We immediately know that they will understand our needs from plant treatment to customer service. We support GHA and its training program because we know it is an investment in our future team.”

Mary Jane Ash, Norval Propagation Manager, Sheridan Nurseries Copy

“When we were asked about collaborating with the Greenhouse Academy it was truly a no-brainer. For our company to have the opportunity to participate and share our business with eager, knowledge-hungry youth is a good thing. With the search for qualified team members getting harder every year, we don’t think it’s ever too soon to start cultivating career paths and sharing a bit of what makes our work enjoyable and rewarding. The kids were focused, friendly and happy to get dirty to add value to the greenhouse and see the fruits of their efforts.”

Rob Brown, Sales Representative, BlueJay Irrigation Copy
