Horticulture, College Credit Certificate (C.C.C.)
Horticulturists apply their knowledge, skills, and technologies used to grow intensively produced plants for human food and non-food uses and for personal or social needs. Their work involves plant propagation and cultivation with the aim of improving plant growth, yields, quality, nutritional value, and resistance to insects, diseases, and environmental stresses.
The horticulture certificate instructs you in the cultivation of all edible plants and non-food crops such as turf and ornamental plants and trees. It also includes plant conservation, landscape design and restoration, golf course maintenance, residential lawn maintenance, and arboriculture.
