Advisory Committee


The Horticulture program has one of the largest and most active advisory committees on campus. It is composed of many green industry leaders and professionals, BCC Horticulture alumni and members of our own faculty and staff. Many members have been on the committee for decades. The committee meets four times a year and is an invaluable asset by advising, guiding and providing feedback for all aspects of the program.
