Landscape/Horticulture Technology

Students Certified as Pesticide Applicators

"This certification is something that employers look for, so these students are at an advantage when it comes to finding a job," said Carl J. Bower, a horticulture instructor in the college's School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies. "Whether it is spraying or taking care of plants naturally, students have a much better knowledge of problem-solving pest issues once they graduate."

A New Addition to the Program

A new addition to the program is a 7x14' work trailer with a great wrap. We will use this trailer for when we are working off campus in our labs, most specifically our landscape construction lab.

Landscape/Horticulture trailer

When we work off campus it takes time loading and unloading tools and this will be a much more efficient way to get to those jobs and have the tools we need. Much the same way that industry uses enclosed trailers we are trying to prepare students for the real world. While it is out on the job this will help portray the professional image we are trying to foster in the students.

Students Plan to Travel to National Competition
