What is horticulture?
Horticulture explores the science and art of cultivating plants and the many ways that plants enhance the human experience. The cultivation of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants is key to solving many of the major challenges facing the world, such as producing food to meet the needs of an ever-growing population while conserving land, water and soil resources. An understanding of these challenges and potential solutions can enhance any career.
