Auburn University has an outstanding Department of Horticulture. It has been recognized nationally for its research programs, its faculty commitment to students and the high rate of employment of its graduates.
The department offers three areas of specialization: Landscape Horticulture, Pre-Landscape Architecture/Landscape Horticulture, Nursery and Greenhouse Science and Fruit and Vegetable Production.
On this week’s Backyard Wisdom, I visit with two undergraduate Horticulture students, Molly Hendry and Anna Gore. Molly is a junior pre-landscape architecture major from Birmingham while Anna is a senior in landscape horticulture from Opelika.
Both are members of the Auburn student chapter of PLANET, Professional Landcare Network, and are actively helping prepare for the 37th Annual Student Career Days that will be held March 7-10 at Auburn. Listen to our conversation here and learn about this program that brings horticulture students and landscape professionals together. More than 1,200 students from across the nation will be on campus to participate in workshops, competitive events and career opportunities. Here’s a preview video about the event.
This event requires a large number of volunteers. If you would like to help support Student Career Days, you can help by volunteering.
