HORT 10100 Sp11 - 1 Syllabus HORT 10100 - Fundamentals of Horticulture Spring 2011 Class Objective: Our objective is to introduce you to horticulture and, we hope, to challenge you with enjoyable learning. Horticulture is the utilization of knowledge about plants and how they grow to serve mankind in various ways; i.e. with a more nutritious tomato, a larger rose, a more attractive and functional landscape. In this course we’ll use prepared lecture Powerpoints, live lectures and class discussions, laboratory exercises, field trips and guest speakers to assist you in learning. We hope the semester will be a pleasurable and enlightening one for you.
