Group Horticulture Club Projects:
South Coast Plaza Installation: Each year the club competes in the South Coast Plaza Spring Garden Show.
Mondays : 8:15 -9:00 pm sharp in the Horticulture classroom.
As of February 28, we have submitted our design and statement of intent. The Statement of Intent can be found here, and the design can be found posted on the Hort Club Bulletin board.
Theme Description: “Foreign Intrigue – Gardens of the World”
“Are you intrigued by the idea of creating a display garden using foreign design inspiration? We invite you to let your imagination roam around the globe and return inspired with wild and crazy ideas…a Santorini cave-house patio garden, a Bora Bora lagoon-side taro garden, a Moroccan camel station oasis! If such whimsy is not your style, take your inspiration from Giverny, Boboli or the Alhambra gardens. Create a Mediterranean, Australian or South African retreat using plants that are right at home here in Southern California. Maybe an English cottage garden or a Balinese Shangri-La is more your style. As you can see, the possibilities are endless!
Each year, the Southern California Spring Garden Show receives tens of thousands of garden-loving visitors. They come to learn from our seminar speakers, shop with our top quality garden vendors, and be inspired and delighted by our unique display gardens. This is a great opportunity to use your design skills, practice teamwork, and have lots of fun representing your school in our competition.
As our planet becomes smaller and more homogenized, we can still appreciate the unique character of different locations and cultures around the world. Help us celebrate this diversity by creating a display garden inspired by a far-away place. Intrigued?”
