TAFE Northern Sydney Institute



m2 To the vision

About this organisation

The Northern Sydney Institute offer an extensive range of TAFE courses, higher education degrees, university pathway programs and short courses to suit all walks of life. We offer Trade qualifications and specialist courses in aboriculture, floristry irrigation, landscape, nursery, parks and gardens and sports turf management. The institute is an award-winning leader in sustainability education in Australia offering professional qualifications in environmental management, conservation and sustainability.

Why we support the vision

We believe in more green spaces. This sector employs around 80,000 people in production (such as turf farming, floriculture and nurseries), landscape gardening, parks and gardens maintenance (like greenkeeping, turf management and arboriculture), retail (nurseries, florists), and the newer areas of green walls and roof top gardens needing better educated designers and maintainers. We train people who move into all these sector and jobs. Green spaces also reduce the city heat load, encourage wildlife, are an easy way to add beauty to commercial areas and generally make the world a better place. Go green.
