A team of senior students have been working closely with Brother Westergard for the design and he is very pleased with their work and progress. By December the project will be in the design phase and complete and they will submit: landscape plans, 3D models, a written report, and a video to explain our concept. Once a phased master landscape plan is submitted to the school, they will then raise money in their local community and neighborhood to move the project forward into phased construction starting in 2017.
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.
