Horticulture is the branch of agriculture that deals with the art, science, technology and business of plant health and cultivation. We work as gardeners, growers, therapists, diagnosticians, designers and technical advisors in both the consumer and commercial sectors of horticulture.

Horticulture programs here in Montgomery County are designed to help everyone from backyard enthusiasts to commercial growers, to those just beginning to set up a farm business. Having the expertise of Karla Kean, Horticulturist there are many different programs offered to help farmers and gardeners succeed.
