|Description:||Environmental Horticulture is the process of enhancing the spaces in which we live and work, using good design and appropriate plants, with a strong emphasis on environment sustainability. Our environment includes the air, water, and soil, as well as the plant and animal life around us.
There are many practical components to the Environmental Horticulture program. Our campus has 28 acres with over 1500 trees and shrubs, and hundreds of herbaceous plants. This is an ideal outdoor laboratory for training and experience in disciplines such as arboriculture, plant identification, landscape maintenance, and landscape construction. All the instructors have experience working in the green industry, with a wide range of expertise to pass on to students.
