Oranjestad – On March 3, 2023, the first group of students completed the course Horticulture.

The Horticulture course was a collaboration between the EPE and Santa Rosa. Mrs. Sabine de Groot, on behalf of the EPE and Minister Glenbert Croes, presented the graduates with their well-deserved certificates.

The Horticulture course was split into two parts, theory and practice, and were both given at the Santa Rosa. For the practical part, they visited different agriculture sites and orchards.

The theoretical part gave the students insights into better techniques for planting and cultivating while the practical part taught them hands-on how to plant, explore the different methods and soil types, and which soil is best for which plant. “We are happy and proud of this group who achieved their goal of completing this course. We hope there is more interest for another horticulture course and make horticulture an important economic pillar for Aruba,” the Minister of Labor, Energy, and Integration, Mr. Glenbert Croes stated.

The next course will start on April 3, 2023, and those interested can contact the EPE at 5825662. For more information, visit www.epearuba.com or Facebook@Enseñansa pa Empleo.
