It’s time for the annual plant sale, created and sponsored by the Pickens Technical College Horticulture program!
Every year (excluding last year due to the spread of COVID-19), Urban Horticulture and Landscaping students cultivate and nurture all the plants you’ll need to build the ultimate garden each spring and summer. This year, the two-day event will be held May 6th and 7th, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. each day on our campus in Aurora. The spring plant sale has everything you need for your garden, including friendly advice from both Horticulture teachers and students.
The Urban Horticulture and Landscape Program prepares students for entry-level employment in four specialties within the field: interior and nursery plantscaping, greenhouse operations and design, and landscaping. Students learn about the materials they’ll be using on the job, the operations of professionals in this field, and successful business practices. Their instructors are experienced both in teaching and in the horticulture and landscaping field. As with all PTC instructors, their primary goal is to prepare students for work in the industry and future success.
Be sure to get to the plant sale early if you can – these beautiful plants go quickly every year as amateur and professional gardeners flock to this event to see what the Horticulture students at PTC have to offer them! Get them at affordable prices in time to build your own garden and landscaping space at your home this spring and summer.
