TAFE SA horticulture graduate receives Industry Skills Award

Jan 11, 2022

TAFE SA graduate Brayden Fitzpatrick has won the TAFE SA Industry Skills Award at the annual Regional Showcase Awards.

Brayden, who studied Horticulture at TAFE SA’s Barossa Valley Campus, is the owner of Fitzy’s Natives & Horticulture Services which has expanded from a backyard hobby to a business growing and selling up to 30,000 plants a year to local councils, property owners and farmers.

He uses social media to educate people about Australian native plants and continues to explore innovative propagation methods.

Brayden was one of three TAFE SA graduates to receive an award at the Regional Showcase Awards, presented by Solstice Media, at the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre earlier this month.

The Regional Showcase program uncovers stories of innovation, achievement and community service in regional South Australia.

This year, more than 100 Regional Showcase stories were published by Solstice Media, highlighting some incredible people and the positive impact they’ve made in their regional communities.

From these stories, several were chosen for individual awards and 20 stories were put to a public vote to decide the People’s Choice Award.

TAFE SA student Steven Toope received the Meaningful Connections Award and past student Sadiki Kamundele was presented with the Lifelong Learning Award, while graduate Melanie Basham was a Top 20 nominee.

Retiree Steven Toope, from Mount Gambier, is studying Financial Counselling, so he can help support his local community as it deals with the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.

Sadiki Kamundele, also from Mt Gambier, is an artist working on community art projects. A refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sadiki attended TAFE SA’s Adult Migrant English Program when he first arrived in the state’s South East.

Community volunteer Melanie Bassham had a successful career in hospitality and tourism before re-training in Community Services at TAFE SA and working to assist those in need in the Murray Bridge district.

Congratulations to all winners and nominees in the Regional Showcase
