2nd Greenhouse and Hydroponic
Technical Management Course for India

“Delish Veggies and Graeme Smith Consulting are pleased to announce the 2nd Greenhouse and Hydroponic Training Program in India after the grand success of our first training course in February 2017.

We received phenomenal response for our 1st training program due to presence of renowned international trainers from Australia and practical farm tours whereby we hosted 6 international participants, 7 Indian states and 35 participants and received “extremely satisfied” feedback from all the participants.

Delish Veggies had to decline many participants in 1st training program due to limited seats, therefore due to popular demand we are organizing a 2nd course this October (23rd to 27th) and have again included many interesting topics and commercial farm set up sessions.”
