Do you like the idea of spending time in a warm and sunny greenhouse? Do you have a love of plants, flowers and/or vegetables? Maybe you have a desire to grow your own delicious and healthful produce? Do you have an interest in hydroponics and/or aquaponics? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you should consider the greenhouse industry for your career!
For 40+ years Central Lakes College (CLC) has been training students to become professionals in greenhouse production. CLC students appreciate the hands-on instruction and practice they receive; planting and caring for plants in the greenhouse; learning pest management skills; being able to identify the many annuals and perennials; and participating in so many other activities connected with plants.
