Penn State Horticulture Club To Transform Ag Arena For Annual ‘Hort’ Show

The Penn State Horticulture Club will transform the Snider Agriculture Arena into an intricate botanical landscape for its annual Horticulture Show Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21.

All plants featured in the display will be for sale, along with fresh produce, apple cider, pumpkins, and house plants. 

The plants on display are donated by landscape companies and plant nurseries from Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

The Horticulture Club’s members are primarily focused on creating a positive environment to educate themselves and the Penn State community about the importance of horticulture.

“The Hort Show is our biggest yearly fundraiser and we are continually trying to attract more people to see what great work Penn State students are capable of,” Director Steve Constable said.

Membership is available to all students who have an interest in gardening and landscaping. There are opportunities to get involved throughout the spring and fall semesters, including flower sales and the National Collegiate Landscape Competition.

The Horticulture Club has defended its ninth place ranking for two years in a row, and use the competition as an opportunity to network and connect with professionals in the landscaping field from all over the country.

This weekend’s show will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The club asks that plant buyers return to claim their purchases at the end of the show so the landscape remains intact.
