Landscape Horticulture Western

[ Instructor talking students through the work ] Pete >> Landscape horticulture is such a wide field.

but a lot of what we work with is with plants.

What we do a lot of work on is to to get the right plant in the right place.

I think the students learn best — and welike teaching best — with the hands-on opportunity.

So the more hands-on we can give them, the more they like it, and the more they remember and are able to apply it when they're out in the field.

[ To students: "It's going to get about 30 ft.

tall and only be about.

5 ft.

wide" ] Any campus can be used as a living and learning lab.

[ to students: "what is the value of the wood mulch?" ] And of course in landscape, there's no better opportunity, because everywhere you walk and go, it's a living and learning lab.

Sara >> I chose a technical college because I felt it would be.

appropriate for my career going forward.

It's hands-on, right now, the things that Ineed to learn to go forward in the career that I want to pursue.

I'm learning.

The instructors here have taught me everything.

There's so many different directions you can go.

[ Instructor talking to students ] Pete >> The job market is strong; we can really prepare them well to get the opportunity to knock on that door.

You don't find very many people in the field are not happy; people are happy in this area –because they really love doing what they're doing.
