The Blackburn Horticulture Academy invites students to learn the process of growing plants for the garden, and home.  Skills taught in the class and greenhouse are: how to make your own potting mix; how to propagate plants from seeds and cuttings; how to care for plants inside and outside of your home;  and how to grow hundreds/thousands of plants in the greenhouse for spring planting.

Hydroponics is a rapid growing field.  Blackburn offers the opportunity for students to learn several methods of hydroponics from the setting-up of different systems to harvesting the produce.
