Have you been down to the Thomas E Ricks Horticulture Gardens lately? This warm weather has brought beautiful flowers and new plants for all to see. Spring is the best time for a light walk, studying outdoors or even napping in the gardens. You can check out the different structures like Patsy’s Porch or the new Spirit Garden for fun and relaxation. The Gardens are a great place for activities like FHE or a little photography session. Everyone is welcome, come and see what the Gardens have to offer you.
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.
