Hi! We are a group of college students at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, California.
The Leaning Pine Arboretum at Cal Poly's Environmental Horticulture Unit
We have started this blog to share some of our experiences as students in the Horticulture and Crop Science (HCS) Department. This department offers us as students the opportunity not just to learn, but to learn by doing. As students, we benefit from a broad spectrum of opportunities ranging from hands-on experiences in our working fields, groves, nurseries, and greenhouses to real world applications through internships and other collaborations with industry partners. We excel in providing a foundational plant science background and instilling a passion for plants as we become the next generation of leaders in the agricultural and environmental plant sciences.
The major Agricultural and Environmental Plant Sciences offers 7 different concentrations: Crop Science, Fruit Science, Plant Protection Science, Ornamental Horticulture, Turfgrass & Sports Field Management, Sustainable Landscape Management & Design, and Greenhouse & Nursery Plant Production.
Enjoy this blog! We hope to hear from you soon!
