Agricultural Science

Agricultural Overview

The Applied Horticulture class has been very busy again this year. Located at Middle School South, we have a beautiful greenhouse and a complete floral store for our use. Hands-on activities in the classroom range from corsages & boutonnières to wreaths and floral arrangements. Students will soon be out on the sports fields seeding, fertilizing, and maintaining the grass. Also upkeep of the baseball and softball fields keeps them busy in the spring. In Coastal Flora, our student run floral shop, we have many new arrangements, gifts and fresh flowers, all designed by our students. Students experience business management skills of a retail flower shop by designing floral displays; handling flowers, plants, and floral accessories. Also students learn the aesthetic principles of design firsthand as they create a series of floral compositions from natural and artificial materials. In early April, we will begin planting annual and perennial flowers, fruits, vegetables and herbs in our greenhouse. Remember to stop by Coastal Flora to pick up your garden plants and flowers this year in early May!

Reminder: 5th and 6th hour @ South
