One of the best and easiest ways to find a job after graduation is to network now. Even if that Company isn't working in the area you want, they may have friends that are. It's not always what you know but who you know. Seminar is a great way not only to network with people in the horticulture industry, but also find out all the who, what, when, where, and how's of their trade. Just recently we heard from Holly Mcmann owner of Flowers on Main, and Mark from Davey Tree Expert who climbed his way to the top to a great position. Who knows, you could be these people in 10 years returning to tell all about your adventures in life.
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.
