There’s something for everyone, whether you are an enthusiastic gardener, degree-seeker, or industry professional.

Our goal is to offer students hands-on field experience while providing an excellent learning environment in the classroom. Classes are small enough to allow individual attention.

Select from a wide variety of classes, building on an individual degree program suited to your unique interests and abilities. You can choose from day, evening, weekend, hybrid, and online classes. Begin any quarter and start with one or more classes.  

I am a non-traditional student. Is this program right for me?

You’ll fit right in! Our students range from young adults to senior citizens, with an average age of 40. About 40% of our students choose to take only evening classes, about 60% of students are already working in the field, and 40% of those already own their own businesses.

Do graduates find work in the horticulture field?

Local businesses consider the Edmonds Horticulture Department a valuable resource for well-qualified employees, and we have a history of helping our students find employment.  We also have many students that have opened successful businesses after graduation.
