Our Alumni

Many of our Horticulture alumni have been very successful. Some of their various vocations include: business owner, landscape architect, estate manager, sales person, greenhouse manager, garden center sales, crew leader, floral designer, interior plant-scape owner or technician, IPM technician, and many others. A number of them are very involved in the horticulture community and have held offices in horticultural organizations and associations. Many have been guest speakers at related seminars and conferences, and some have been guest lecturers or teachers at BCC. Five members of the Horticulture Advisory Committee are BCC Horticulture graduates. Many of our graduates have gone on to receive Bachelors or Masters degrees. Below is a listing of some of our successful alumni. We are very proud of them.
