Jonathon Newby, Horticulture Cadetship National Certificate in Horticulture (Advanced) (Fruit Production) (Level 4) Student
My qualification from EIT has enabled me to be employed in the horticulture industry worldwide and also helped me win the NZ National Young Fruit Grower of the Year title.
I have been working in the agricultural sector for over forty years. Originally from the UK I emigrated to NZ in 1986 and worked as a dairy farm manager in the Waikato. From 1995-2009 my wife, family and I lived in Tanzania, East Africa working in the area of community development. I facilitated farmers groups to help enable them better use their resources and improve their livelihoods. I also taught agriculture at certificate level.
