What will I learn?

Environmental Horticulture (EH) teaches students the skills and knowledge required for success in the professions of landscape maintenance, landscape design, permaculture, nursery and greenhouse work, and ecological restoration. The program encourages professional standards, a strong work ethic and environmentally sound practices. Horticulture industry professionals from the local community serve as members of the EH Department’s Advisory Committee, providing guidance and expertise in enhancing the EH program’s curriculum to ensure students are receiving up-to-date knowledge and skills needed to garner positions in the industry.

Through field trips and professional guest speakers, students have a chance to meet actual horticulture businesses and meet industry professionals. This helps prepare the student for future work and lays the groundwork for student’s professional horticulture contacts--many landscape industry employers, in search of energetic and skilled apprentices, contact the department when looking for new apprentices, interns and employees.
