This course is designed to prepare students for either a job in the industry or continuing education in the horticulture field.

For the industry aspect some of the things students will be required to do is: identify a variety of plants (both in the greenhouse, agricultural and landscape), plant and maintain a variety of plants in the greenhouse, get knowledge to obtain a license on pesticides, fertilizers, small equipment, etc., creating and implementing landscape plans, maintaining the grounds around the school and involvement in the plant sale at the end of the school year. 

Students will understand how plants grow, move nutrients around and reproduce. Students will conduct laboratory experiments on providing the best growing environment for plants.
