The Horticulture Society is comprised primarily of undergraduate students who are plant enthusiasts, including both horticulture and non-horticulture majors. This is their largest fundraiser of the year with all the proceeds going to the club to help pay for excursions to places such as Chicago Botanic Garden, local CSA farms, apple orchards and other places of horticultural importance as well as outreach programs and speakers for meetings.
Plants are sourced from Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery (Middleton), Sunny Rose Herbs (Monroe), and Krueger Wholesale Florist (Schofield). Plant care supplies are sourced from Schroth Wholesale Supply Co., Inc. in Menasha.
