Plant Science 101

This workshop will cover all topics related to complete plant science and cultivation. With a focus on biology at a university level, our workshop will comfortably discuss plant cells and cell structure, how plants grow, and how to best cultivate them at home. We will look into the science behind fertilisers, irrigation and environmental control, alongside the best ways to sustainably imrpove your own garden. 

After completing undergraduate university studies in Journalism, Media & Business, I believed I had the education and ability to follow my true passion in the field of sustainable horticulture. I've since received qualifications in Production Horticulture from the National Precision Growing Centre  and have finished studying plant biology at RMIT. I have worked in the hydroponics sector since 2014 and am now a regularly featured author for "Maximum Yield Indoor Gardening" magazine, with several articles published in Australia, UK, Canada and the United States. I have a passion for sustainable and productive cultivation techniques and my role at Stealth Garden Supplies allows me to travel, meet horticultural experts and learn about the most innovative developing industry technology. I'm presently the Technical Support & Communications Manager for Stealth Garden Wholesale Supplies. We provide the latest horticultural technology to Australian farmers. As an active member of the 'Hydroponic Gardeners Society of Victoria', I'm passionate about developing technologies and advancements in the industry. We have also established a horticultural consulting and compliance service that assists new businesses entering the licensed medical cannabis space in Australia. Overall, I'm a passionate plant person, I love my garden and I love my home-grown vegetables. I hope to share this love and passion with as many people as I can.
