I have an assignment in my horticulture class where I have to have 4 people from the horticulture industry fill out a small survey so I can present in front of class and I was hoping some ATS members could help me out by taking the survey.

So if you're a landscaper, arborist, greenhouse grower, or any other profession in the horticulture field I would really appreciate your participation and enjoy learning about your career.

Just "quote" this post and fill in the survey. You can keep your answers brief and you don't have to fill in any information you don't want to.

Thank you for participating.

I hope you get some responses. I'm not a horticulturalist, but I do grow stuff.

Any farmers out there that would like to participate?

I'd really appreciate your input.

We took a tour of a 1 acre apple orchard on Wednesday and the farmer said he made 40K off his 1 acre of apple trees last year! He planted his original trees back in 1985 from grafted roots and him and his wife built up from there. Nice little side job. If I had the land I'd do it too. As of now I'm a cave dweller.

Also, if you'd rather "personal message" me the completed survey that will be fine too.
I understand how privacy could be a concern.

I just need people in the Horticulture arena to tell me about their career so that I may learn which area would be a good fit for me.
