Horticulture Community Outreach

On Saturday Sept 19th, the Jackson County Green Energy Park hosted their annual community expo. Haywood Community College was well represented by two members of the Horticulture program. Instructor George Thomas gave a presentation on "Propagation of Woody and Herbaceous Perennial Plants", while sophomore student Sage Smith gave a talk on "Basic Principles of Bonsai".

“The Jackson County Green Energy Park (JCGEP) is a landfill recovery program located in the historic small town of Dillsboro, North Carolina. The JCGEP mission is to offer environmental protection, educational opportunities, and increased economic development to the community through the utilization of landfill gas (LFG) and other clean, renewable energy resources.”
