HCC Horticulture Tours Warren Wilson

Horticulture students toured Warren Wilson College today on a field trip as part of HOR 213 (Landscape Design II). HCC Horticulture Alumnus Tom LaMuraglia, Warren Wilson Supervisor of Landscaping, and HCC Horticulture Alumna RenĂ©e Fortner, Assistant Supervisor of Landscaping, graciously led our class on the tour of campus, highlighting Warren Wilson’s numerous sustainable landscaping initiatives. Stops included Warren Wilson’s edible gardens in the Eco-dorm courtyard, formal gardens on the historic main campus, native grass experimental crop stands, and organic gardens…all from the back of landscaping crew’s truck!
