Our Living Laboratory
​The Horticulture department boasts excellent facilities, modern equipment, and a well equipped classroom building set in the midst of beautifully landscaped grounds. These grounds contain a large collection of trees, shrubs, vines, and ground cover that serve as a laboratory for many of the classes. A nursery with over 10,000 square feet of greenhouse space and shade structures round out these fine teaching facilities.
