Welcome to Horticulture Club! We are passionate about the future of Horticulture and building well-rounded individuals for the futures and challenges of plant sciences. We are a career-driven group who takes learning outside of the classroom in order to better educate ourselves within our field.
Here at the MU Horticulture Club, we provide hands-on experience and other learning opportunities for students interested in horticulture. Activities include landscaping, greenhouse production, vegetable gardening, container plantings, field trips, employer meetings, internship opportunities and lots of food!

Please describe who is eligible for membership and list any criteria used in the selection process. If open to all please indicate so.
Any MU student is eligible for membership, including non-horticulture majors.
This is less formal than your purpose statement. Take this opportunity to discuss any activities you may be known for or what members of your organization can expect to gain through their membership within your organization.
Horticulture Club is an opportunity for anyone to learn about plants. Our members include freshmen through graduate students, horticulture majors through music majors. It is a great way to network with other students in the plant science department, or just other people that like to be with plants.
Every year we host at least two sales. At least one of the sales is from plants that we produce ourselves (such as vegetable transplants in the spring) and the other sale is always a rose sale on Valentine's day. This provides our members the opportunity to learn the process of greenhouse production and gain floral design and retail experience.
In the past few years, field trips have included: Saint Louis (zoo, botanical garden, nursery, greenhouses, etc), Hermann (winery, tree farm, cut flower farm, florist shop, wedding venue), Kansas City (Kauffman & Arrowhead Stadiums, botanical garden) and Chicago! (botanical garden, zoo, ball seed company, ball hort gardens)
No experience is necessary! We love to have fun and eat so come hang out with us and bring your friends.
Please include the days/dates your organization meets, the location, and time. This information helps students interested in joining your organization connect with you.
