Support our Future Horticulture Professionals

The Garden is dedicated to the advancement and appreciation of gardening, horticulture, and conservation through plant collections and education programs within an aesthetic landscape. Proceeds from the sale benefit IBG horticulture programs and ensure practical experience for the College of Western Idaho’s Horticulture students.

The students need to learn the nursery industry, from seed propagation to retailing grown plants. The Garden provides an outdoor classroom for the students and works closely with them to prepare and present the annual plant sale.

CWI horticulture program trains students for careers in the “green industry” to work in retail and wholesale nurseries, greenhouses, floral shops, public and private landscape maintenance organizations, highway departments and other agencies. Graduates often start their own businesses in various horticulture fields.
