Bro. Toll, Sis. Cox, and students in the floriculture class (HORT 375) toured the horticulture industry April 5th-17th starting in San Francisco and worked all the way down to San Diego. They were able to meet with the largest companies, growers, and nurseries in the industry and see the newest plant varieties and products coming into the market.
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.
