Youth in landscaping

You've got to like headlines that have the words "landscaping" and "win-win" together.

An article in the Seaway (Cornwall, Ontario Canada) News newsletter highlighted a program designed to put youth (here defined as between the ages of 15 and 30) into the landscaping trade. It's a program called "Youth in Landscaping," which is part of the Canadian government's Individual Skills Enhancement program, which is all part of Service Canada.

In this case the youth spend three days a week in the field and two in the classroom learning everything from CPR and resume writing to the finer points of hardscaping.
For more on the program, read the full article here.

Youths can learn more on practical gardening and landscaping by taking part on activities which can be outside or inside the school.
