This Thursday December 10, 2009 at 6:00 pm the Plant Science classes from the Agribusiness, Plant, and Animal Sciences Department will be going head to head in a competition with the Plant science classes from the Horticulture Department. This will be held in Benson 219. This event is open to attend by the students in both departments. There will also be pizza. So come show your support and cheer on your favorite team! Wear green and black if you are cheering for the Horticulture department, which of course everyone is.
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.
