This was another great opportunity for the students to experience the industry first-hand. The students enrolled in the Evergreen class were required to go and then the trip was opened up to any Horticulture student that wanted to go. They visited turf companies, arborists, greenhouses, landscape companies and many other sites around San Francisco.
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.
