I Want To Work Outdoors

Is sitting in an office 9 till 5, 5 days a week your worst nightmare? Had enough time sitting in a classroom? Prefer to work outdoors?

The majority of Agrifood occupations are based outdoors, if this sounds great then explore the links or get started on the 'what can I do now' suggestions.

What can I do now? Spend a day with a farmer, see if you can get some casual work at a nursery, what about work experience with Parks and Garden's staff at your local council? visit a National Park, go out on a fishing boat.
