Hortitech is an owner operated business, established in Ottawa in 2012, with its roots stretching from “Old World”. Interest and dedication to the green industry was “grafted” back in 2006 during a student exchange program “Work & Travel”. While working in Boston’s playground - the fabulous White Mountain region of New England, beside a “Golden pond”, trimming and cutting for the future on a grounds crew at an upscale camp resort.
With time, the young “graft” was strengthened at Algonquin College by a two-year Horticulture Technician diploma, baked for three seasons under the harsh and humid Ottawa summer sun, sprinkled with water and brought up to light during dark nights by industries best.
While on its own, facing new, valuable lifelong experiences, using every opportunity to learn new ways, combining and selecting the best practices along with great work ethic from “New and Old worlds" passing it all along to clients.
