HSE High School Horticultural Class Support

For more information, click here to contact the committee chair.


The purpose of this program is to reach out to High School students in Hamilton County to assist in cultivating interest in exploring continued education and horticultural careers within our community.

History of Committee

This program began in 2006 when Debbie Fornefeld and Jeanette Daniels approached HSE and offered to provide master gardeners support to help in the greenhouse and classroom. In return, HSE allows HCMGA the use of a portion of the greenhouse for plant propagation and sustainability of various plants.  Each year the program begins with a hands on presentation from Kathryn Mascaro demonstrating plant propagation. Master gardener volunteers work with the students the remainder of the year planning, planting and caring for plants to be sold at the annual spring plant sale benefiting the FFA program.
