Considered the largest collegiate competition event in the country, students compete in events and attend workshops that are directly related to the skills they’ll need to succeed in the industry. Landscape design, irrigation techniques, hardscape installation, plant identification, business management and many more.

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.
