Come Alive Outside is a celebration of all the fun to be had in the beauty of the outdoors. There are multiple benefits to spending more time outside, and this event will educate you about why we all need more outdoor play no matter our age. You can find us in the gardens on September 29th, between the Ricks and the Benson buildings having a good time with games and prizes, Zumba, and food. For $2 there will be a baked potato bar and fresh pressed juice from apples in our orchard. This event will begin at 12 noon and end at 5 p.m. with a shut down during the Devotional hour. The keynote speaker will present at 12:45 p.m.
Come for the food. Come for the fun. Come for the friends.

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.
