Greenhouse Management and Horticulture Science
36 Weeks, 3 Credits, Course No. 8034/8035
Do you have an interest in plants, enjoy being close to nature, are industrious and don’t mind hard work? Greenhouse Management and Horticulture Science is for you! Students apply creativity, basic art skills and their desire to work with their hands to learning about floral design, plant production and “plantscaping.” This includes growing flowers, bedding plants, house plants and ornamental greenery while working in a controlled greenhouse environment. You will also learn floral design, plant propagation and transplanting of plants through a simulated business model that entails planting, growing and marketing plants for the class plant sales throughout the school year.
