Farmers Markets in Rexburg and Idaho Falls are in full swing. A few students taking Practicum this semester will be at each of the farmers markets throughout the season selling plants to the public. Farmers markets have an exciting atmosphere with many local vendors selling homemade and/or homegrown products.

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.
