DULUTH, GA – South Georgia Technical College Horticulture students Jordan Jones and Charles Collins attended the Georgia Green Industry Association Trade Show in Duluth, Georgia recently along with SGTC Horticulture Instructor Brandon Gross.

The SGTC Horticulture students met and talked with vendors and nurseries in Georgia and surrounding states. The trade show was part of the Wintergreen conference which “is proud to be Georgia’s premier multi-day trade show and conference for the green industry in the state.”

The trade show boasts over 250 exhibitors and thousands of attendees each year.  “This was a great opportunity for our students to attend a trade show of this magnitude and also talk with potential employers,” said SGTC Horticulture Instructor Brandon Gross.  “This allows students to see the different career paths available with this program and also allows employers to see the quality of graduates that we can provide for this industry.”
