This year the US National Collegiate Landscape Competition (NCLC) was held in North Carolina. This annual three day event brings together the top landscape and horticulture students in the country, as well as top industry companies and dozens of the biggest industry manufacturers and suppliers. Each year over 700
students from colleges demonstrate their skills in real-world, competitive events and network with top companies at the largest career fair in the industry. The NCLC was a great opportunity for Para Space to showcase how we are the best landscaping company to work for on the West Coast. Para Space swag, which included a “Vancouver survival kit,” definitely drew in a crowd but also the fact that we were the only Canadian company represented at the career fair generated quite the buzz amongst students. There is nothing better than building a team of people who have a passion for our industry and who want to make this their career. So with this in mind, we offered horticulture students the opportunity to complete an internship here in Vancouver this summer which will give them the chance to gain hands-on experience in the field.
