The class is designed for entry-level growers, and the sessions will occur Nov. 12-13.


Per the the Plant California Alliance, the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources will offer an ABCs of horticulture class, which is designed for entry level growers and those with little or no formal training in horticulture.

Both sessions will start at 7:45 a.m.

The course will focus on basic principles of plant growth, and applicants will learn why growers do the things they do, and how plants “work.” The workshop will consist of three sections:

  • Plant Structures and Functions
  • Plant Physiology
  • Cultural and Environmental Effects on Plant Growth
