We provide horticultural and landscape support for the campus while
providing students majoring in Plant and Soil Science in the School
of Agribusiness and Agriscience an opportunity for hands-on
experience working within a greenhouse environment. The greenhouse
grows bedding plants from seed that are used throughout the campus
to give a welcoming impression to students, visitors, and others. A
variety of potted plants and flowers are grown and used for the
many functions and special events held on campus.
One project appreciated by University staff are the poinsettias
available for decorating offices during the holiday season. Each
year the students produce hundreds of the plants and all are grown
from rooted cuttings in the greenhouse. The cuttings are donated to
the University for the students' use.
