Cheyne Pearce has always felt a deep connection to the land and sea. He wanted a job where he could work in the natural world and perform a role in its care and protection. To fulfil his passion for the environment and equip himself with the right skills, Cheyne studied a Certificate II in Horticulture at North Metropolitan TAFE.
Cheyne loved the course and continued on to the Certificate III and IV, before he landed a dream job as a trainee at Kings Park and Botanic Gardens. Cheyne is living the horticultural dream with access to some of the brightest and best minds in the field.
Cheyne considers his role as more than a job, it’s a career that has meaning to him because he feels he is doing good for the environment.
