In this hands-on 8-credit program students will learn about the scientific principles and practices of plant propagation along with learning about and doing winter season horticultural activities including greenhouse management, garden planning, plant variety selection, soil test report interpretation, pruning, and tool sharpening and repair. Plant propagation topics and practices will include seed germination, growing media, greenhouse seed starting, sanitation, disease prevention, and asexual propagation by division, cuttings, and grafting. Practicum work will include taking care of farm area plantings and propagating plants for the campus farm’s upcoming growing season and market stand.
