Agriculture & Natural Resources

Our CTE Horticulture Pathway is in partnership with HCOE and other local schools.  It is held at Redwood Acres in the HCOE greenhouses.  The greenhouses are a fully hydroponic operation (no soil). These courses are college preparatory and the students enrolled help harvest, clean, weigh and set up for new planting. Through partnerships with local businesses the produce harvested is sold at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and other facilities.
