The Humber Arboretum is well known for its horticulture and landscape design, exemplified by its beautiful gardens. The expert Horticulture staff is actively involved with training students in the Horticultural Apprenticeship and Landscape Technician programs at Humber College. Students learn firsthand by planning, constructing and maintaining projects on the grounds.
