Introduction to Horticulture - High School Curriculum:

Horticulture Curriculum for High School Educators Announced

The MNLA Foundation is proud to announce an invaluable resource for high school teachers. Pathways Through Horticulture is a free curriculum that addresses the importance and significant value of horticulture and gives a detailed orientation of Botany and Plant Growth, Plant Materials, Floriculture, Landscape Design and Maintenance, and Careers.  This curriculum guide provides materials for teachers to use in developing a 1- or 2-year course in horticulture-related occupations.  The program prepares students with employability skills that are transferable among horticulture-related occupations or into other vocational programs.   

Members of the MNLA are embracing relationships with all levels of education throughout Minnesota to encourage young people to consider education and careers in the Horticulture Industry.  Local members can assist with classroom presentations, field trips, demonstrations and technical assistance to bring the classroom experience to real life experience.

The horticulture industry provides economic value to our communities and to the country.  A healthy green industry creates job opportunities, food, and psychological well-being.  Education and training required for people wanting to be in the industry have led to increased enrollment in horticulture and agronomic programs at two-year colleges, and universities.  A student who plans to study horticulture can earn an associate‚Äôs, baccalaureate, masters or a doctoral degree.  Earning a degree betters the opportunity to find a higher paying job in the green industry.

The curriculum includes:

Each module will take 2 to 15 hours, depending on how much depth the teacher wants to discuss. Each module includes a script for the teacher, suggested classroom activities, PowerPoint presentation and or reading lessons, and suggestions on where to go for more information.

 

The links below are complimentary downloads. If you prefer a printed manual, you may purchase it from our Store for $50.00 plus shipping.
