Amazing job to all those who participated in the competition from Bro. Dewey's HORT 201 Plant Culture class! You really know your stuff.
Here is a list of the participants from our department:
Group 1 – Toffer Hansen, Kaitlin Lewis, and Richelle Walton – their presentation was on Ecocradle (using mushrooms as packaging insulation)
Group 2 – Casey Halling, Chun Lee, and Allison Smith – their presentation was on the effects of the gulf oil spill on aquatic plant life – this presentation won the competition.
Group 3 – Ivan Harper, Jenese McKamey, Desiree Smith, and Leanne Thompson – their presentation was on aromatherapy.
Here are two of the videos shown at the competition in case you weren't able to attend. Hope you enjoy!
THE WINNING GROUP:
Sister Marilee Bass is getting married to Devin Garner on July 31 in the Salt Lake Temple. There will be a reception one week later on August 7th from 6:00-8:00 in the Midvale, UT Third Ward chapel. She wanted to invite all students, but didn't have a budget for all the announcements. :) If you will be in town or have the means to attend, you are certainly invited.
Here is the application to sign up to participate in PLANET next year. If you are in town, please deliver to Bro. John's office. Otherwise, fill it out, scan it and send it back using this form below. We can use any and all participants with the necessary knowledge. Apply and start preparing!
What do professors do outside of school? Ride in a demolition derby of course!
Bro. Dewey participated in the demolition derby on Saturday, July 10th. He was the passenger of the vehicle while a friend was the driver. Their car took 2nd overall that night.
This is a competition that we have been having between our department and the Agriculture department. Every semester two classes research and present on a topic in front of a panel of judges. The judges then determine the winner, either Horticulture or Agriculture. It is a fun filled evening with lots of neat information presented. Refreshments will also be served. Come and support your peers and root for the department.

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.
