It has been much cooler for much longer this year which means that our growing season is even shorter. The grounds crew needed help getting all the flowers planted in the Thomas E. Ricks gardens this year so a couple horticulture classes pitched in and helped to plant. The gardens look so great and colorful every year. It is definitely a hot spot on campus for all types of people: students, faculty and community members. These photos are of Bro. Nelson's Pest Control class (HORT 412).
Head to the Benson greenhouses for the annual Horticulture Plant Sale this Saturday, June 12. It'll be open from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. There will be an abundance of bedding plants, hanging baskets, trees, and shrubs. Come and support our program.
This issue of Campus & Community focused around all of the great things there are available to do in Rexburg. It was designed to help students coming from larger hometowns begin to love the small town feel. Included in the magazine are hot spots for fun dates as well as great places to walk around town to enjoy the outdoors. The gardens made both lists.
Our garden features a variety of flowers and vegetation, several reception areas, beautiful paved walkways, and a few ponds and water features. The flowers throughout the garden are currently being planted by classes and a lot of work has been put into beautifying the Thomas E. Ricks gardens for the summer.
Pick up an issue of Campus & Community at many Scroll racks and make sure to check out pages 27 and 37.
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.
