Welcome to Horticulture!
The horticulture program includes two courses that support agriculture education. The Horticulture Science course provides students with a basic understanding of scientific processes used in solving problems by working with plants in the classroom, laboratory, and greenhouse. The Environmental Horticulture course provides students the opportunity to enhance skills in the nursery, landscaping and floral industries utilizing the school landscape, orchard, garden, and greenhouse facilities. All students will demonstrate competence in the application of scientific principles and techniques to the production and management of plants as well as evaluate current issues in agriculture, learn about career opportunities and practice employability skills.
All horticulture courses utilize the same power standards. Each course will emphasize a different combination of these power standards.
