It is supported by the Princes Countryside Fund, based in the South West of England.

A 10-session learning experience will help anyone looking to start up their own horticulture enterprise, or seeking to expand their existing business skills base.

Each session has an industry expert and leader who will share their knowledge and success, highlighting the challenges of running a successful horticulture business and will be complemented by case studies providing on-theground insights.

The academy is designed to help participants develop a strong innovative business approach, focusing on business planning, structures, finance and communication. It is run over six evenings and two days.

The academy is supported by a range of industry stakeholders. These help by providing a wealth of local knowledge and expertise, helping to identify speakers and supporting the assessment of each applicant on their individual merit.

The South West Horticulture Academy starts on 20 July. There are 20 places available. Applications must be received by 13 June at 5pm.
