I want to work in horticulture, where to begin?

15 years ago

Gardening has always been a significant part of my life but I have never really considered it a career until now. I attended FIT in NYC to learn fashion and I currently work as a designer associate for a high end designer. I'm realizing this is not what I really want to do and I don't want to continue to live NY. I want to return to California and become a horticulturist. However, I don't know exactly how to do so because i'm basically starting off from scratch. I'm scared cost of going back to school would be too expensive on top of loans I'm already paying for FIT. Plus, I would probably need to do low paying part time work compared to what I am making now. Does anyone have any advice on how I should handle this? I don't want to continue a career in fashion. I want to work with plants!
