Please fill out this form and get it to me by the end of this week. The order goes in Monday, March 1st!

There is a lot of competition going on around the Horticulture Department and it is great because competition tends to produce the greatest creative work. The Flower Center is no exception. The girls competed against each other to make the best Valentine's display. We want YOUR opinion of the best! Vote for your favorite below.
If you want to see these displays in person, they are located in the display case (located by the entrance closest to the Fish Bowl). Please, only vote once. This way we can get an accurate vote and find the true majority favorite.

Kristie received the Garden Writers Association Scholarship.
It is award for people studying Horticulture with an interest in journalism/English and the other way around. Kristie found the scholarship on the department's website and filled out the online application , submitted two articles (designed and professionaly printed), a letter of recommendation, short essays about herself, and a signature from Brother Toll. She submitted two different articles to the Association for consideration. A copy of one of the articles can be found here.

We just wanted you to be aware of the Winter Closing Social coming up March 26-27. We will be going to West Piney, a camp located in Swan Valley. There is a lodge, outside toilets, an amphitheater, obstacle course structures, a swing set, tether ball post, soft ball backstop, and a large, long slide from the lodge to the meadow below. Spouces and children are welcome to come.
This will be a lot of fun and of course we are going to BBQ some great steaks like previous socials.
Mark this on your calendars and make the arrangements necessary to come and enjoy the outdoors!
Please RSVP below. Thank you.
Tim Stevenson found out about the Idaho Nursery & Landscape Association scholarship last year on the Horticulture blog. He applied for the scholarship then, but didn't receive it. He put a reminder on the calender in his phone to apply again this year and it definitely paid off. One thing he did that really made a difference was he actually went to Ann Bates (the INLA director in Idaho Falls) and hand delivered it. This was good because she got to meet him in person. Tim received $750!
If you have questions for Tim, you can email him at email@example.com.
Our aim for the Department of Horticulture at Brigham Young University-Idaho is to nurture understanding of both the art and science of Horticulture. Students learn experimentally in the classroom, laboratory, greenhouse, and ten acre Thomas E. Ricks demonstration garden as they pursue an Associates or Bachelors Degree. Using the medium of plants, students develop habits of hard work, enlightened minds, and healthy living that assist in gainful employment opportunitues.
