School:Kwantlen Polytechnic University
Faculty:Faculty of Science & Horticulture
Degree:Diploma
Field of Study:Applied Horticulture/Horticulture Operations, General
Description:Horticulture, a branch of agriculture, focuses on the production and care of fruit, vegetables, and ornamental plants. KPU Horticulture has expanded this focus to include skills-based education for three main areas: (1) production of greenhouse vegetables, flowers, and nursery crops; (2) landscape design, installation, and maintenance; and (3) turf management. These three areas are technology-intensive and knowledge-based areas of horticulture practice and have a great impact on the quality of life for our urban and suburban society.

KPU School of Horticulture facilities include science labs, a fully equipped Field Lab, an extensive rooftop ecosystem laboratory, and a greenhouse complex all on the Langley campus. The Field Lab supports year-round activities typical of greenhouse and nursery production, as well as landscape installation and maintenance and sports turf management. Knowledge and skills standards are based on related horticulture industries located in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
