CNLA members tour DC’s Centre for Food

The Board of Directors of the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) gathered together at the Centre for Food (CFF) on January 20, for a tour and dinner as part of their national winter meetings in Toronto.

President Don Lovisa gave an overall presentation of Durham College (DC) and its positive impact on students and the benefits the college provides in Durham Region. Susan Todd, dean of the School of Science & Engineering Technology described the Horticulture Technician program as it related to the needs of employers for skilled personnel in the nursery business.

Senior business leaders and committee representatives from across the country in the landscape industry plus the provincial association learned about specific programs and the exciting opportunities offered at the CFF.

DC looks forward to establishing partnerships with these important industry leaders in support of the landscape plan as a vital part of the Field-to-Fork concept for the CFF.
