On Saturday, the department hosted 225 youth participants from across Indiana for the 4-H/FFA State Horticulture Career Development Event. This event was coordinated by Kathryn Orvis and Tony Carrell from the State 4-H office. This event is designed to teach skills necessary in the horticulture and landscape industry. They identified ornamental plants, fruits, vegetables, and nuts, evaluated plants based on their structural correctness, and completed a knowledge exam.
