This year’s Master Gardner Conference took place June 25th and 26th. It seems everyone enjoys coming to campus and enjoying our beautiful gardens as their classroom. All who attended had a great day of learning and revitalization. What better way to learn how to improve your own gardens while basking in the glory of well-established garden? We’re already looking forward to next year’s event.
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.
