There is a meeting Tuesday the 8th of January in MC 174A at 3:15 pm, and every first Tuesday thereafter during the winter and spring semesters that will provide information on the Study Abroad trip to the British Isles this fall. There are brochures around the campus, but the meetings provide more detailed information. This travel study experience is a wonderful way to learn about the culture of plants in the UK. Visits are made to several gardens, and there is a tremendous depth of history that helps understand how our Western Culture has developed. If you are interested in the tour, but are not able to attend the information meeting, please feel free to contact Bro. Romney via email, and he will be glad to give you further information. You can also follow the website to the tour application and director information (here is the link for the website). This is a great opportunity to expand your educational experience beyond the classroom. This tour is particularly inclusive of botanic gardens and historic city and rural landscapes. There are still some openings, but they are filling rapidly. Bro Romney has participated in the tour previously with some of our plant students, and highly recommends it to you.
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.
