Apprentices Of The Year 2020 and 2021

November 15, 2021




Last week Landscaping Victoria held their annual industry awards and are delighted to announce that our Landscape Apprentice Connor took out the 2020 award for Apprentice of the Year, and our Maintenance Apprentice Rachel took out the same award for 2021!

Apprentice of the Year 2020 – Connor Davidson

We first met Connor in his late teens, when he began his landscape construction apprenticeship with Ian Barker Gardens. Over the past four years, we have watched Connor develop into a passionate landscaper with an eagerness to learn and a thirst to continue educating himself. In the past few months alone, Connor has shown immense growth, and we know he will be an incredible asset to the industry.

Apprentice of the Year 2021 – Rachel Kellar

Rachel joined the team in 2019 after leaving behind an extremely successful career in the hospitality industry, working as a Sous chef in some of Melbourne’s best restaurants. Since starting her apprenticeship, she has quickly become a very much loved and well-respected member of our team and is a favourite with a lot of our clients! She has a very calm and logical thought process when dealing with challenging clients and issues that arise in the garden. Her intelligence for dealing with these issues is impeccable for someone with only three years in the industry.

We couldn’t think of two more deserving apprentices to win these awards, and we hope you can join us in congratulating both Connor and Rachel!
