Exploring the World of Horticulture

Gr. 6-8

Do you still like to play in the dirt? Want to know if your thumb is green? The field of horticulture is vast and encompasses both the outdoors and indoors – from farmers to florists, botanists to entomologists, arborists to landscape designers, architects and contractors. Whether for fun or a future profession, we will explore and discover the world of horticulture. Through projects designed to identify some of these careers, tour the UWM greenhouse, create a fresh-cut floral design, pot a small indoor/outdoor plant as well as design and build a miniature terrarium.
