The Christmas season is in full swing at the Flower Center. This year we hosted the annual BYU-Idaho wreath making class in Benson 147. After students, faculty and community members made their wreaths out of real pine boughs, the Flower Center girls got creative. They took the extra scraps from the class and made snowflakes using wire and pan glue. They turned out beautifully and would be easy to make at home. Here are some pictures of those girls and the final products.
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.
