Horticulture Department

The Horticulture Department at Fullerton College is one of the leading community college horticulture programs in California. We offer a widely varied program which provides ‘hands-on’ classes for homeowners, nursery and landscape employees, and students wishing to enter the ‘green industry’. With a unique blend of the old and the new, our facilities combine high technology with traditional landscaping and growing practices. 

Our department hosts events for such groups as Fullerton Beautiful, Orange County Master Gardeners, and the California Landscape Contractors Association. Finally, our program hosts several plant sales each year to help provide gardeners with unusual garden plants, herbs, and vegetables. In short, we strive to provide a program of instruction as unique and varied as the students who enroll in our courses.
