We receive a lot of request from around the world to organise a study tour of the horticultural world in the Netherlands. Some ask for specific study tours to learn more about a certain area of expertise and others ask for a general tour to get to know for the high-tech horticultural industry.
In general a study tour consists of a ‘theory’ training session either in classrooms or in greenhouses in the mornings and a company visit in the afternoon.
Because of our extensive network connections within the Westland greenhouse delta and because we are a main partner in the World Horti Center, we can offer you almost any tour you wish for. Whether it is a one day tour or a week long tour, all options are open.
