Horticulturists are solving some of the world’s biggest problems.

People working in plant careers – known as “horticulturists” – are using their plant knowledge to solve some of our biggest challenges like feeding a growing world, climate change and clean water.

Plants are everywhere!

There are more than 400,000 plant species in the world, and about 2,000 of them are used to make food.
