Every Fall donators from all over, who have made a contribution of $1000 dollars or more, are invited to a lunch hosted by the campus. Each department is invited to answer questions and show the talents that they are acquiring while attending here at Brigham Young University of Idaho. Our own Floral students participate every year and have been for 20 years, it has become a tradition. Every year they work hard at making beautiful center pieces, corsages for the ladies, and boutonnieres for the men. Jaime Garret a Floral student loved seeing people’s faces light up as she pinned Boutonnieres on them. Presidents club is great experience for the floral students and they are also Flower Center best customers.
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.
