Welcome to the Horticulture Department.

For over thirty years the Horticulture Program has served both career students and home gardeners. We offer a diverse range of classes including Arboriculture, Basic Horticulture, Business Aspects of Horticulture, Crop Management & Nursery Production, Edible Landscaping, Greenhouse Operation and Design, Irrigation, Sustainable Landscaping, Landscape Design, Landscape Restoration, Native Plants, Organic Agriculture, Hydroponics, Pest Management, Plant Materials, Permaculture and Current Topics.

 

The Horticulture Department sits on 11 beautiful view acres, overlooking the entire campus and the Monterey Bay region. The new Environmental Horticulture Center and Botanic Gardens was formally dedicated on Feb. 7, 2003. The center provides students with an excellent horticultural educational facility and is a new focus for community activities. There is a community building with a room for lectures, conferences, meetings and special events. In addition, the community center has a classroom, and a learning center. A state-of-the-art nursery includes greenhouses, shade houses, raised beds, and a lab classroom. We also have CCOF certified organic farm.

Cabrillo College has one of the largest Salvia collections in the world as well as collections of California natives, especially those from the Monterey Bay region, plants from the Mediterranean regions of the world, and succulents at the Botanic Gardens.
