[ 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.
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.
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.
