Invasive Knowledge

Today, Horticulture Technology Instructor Buddy Tignor gave a talk to the Waynesville Garden Club on Invasive Plants of Western North Carolina. Differences between native, exotic, and invasive exotic plants were discussed.

The Waynesville Garden Club generously provided funds for a hydroponic system that Dr. John Sherman is using as a major component of the spring course HOR 245 Specialty Crops. Under John's direction, students will be assembling and using the system to produce herbs in the greenhouse.
