Students involved in the trip were able to meet with seven companies in nursery production, landscaping, and the flower market. Many of the companies encouraged students to pursue internship and employment opportunities within their companies. Students were also able to experience Washington's beaches, botanical gardens, and unique cuisine. We invite all horticulture students to continue to seek these incredible opportunities to gain experience and find internship and job opportunities.
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.
