The Oregon State University Horticulture Club is administered under the auspices of the Department of Horticulture, with an advisor appointed by the Department head. Student Club officers direct the activities of the club which range from Christmas and Mom’s Weekend plant sales to representing the department at the yearly held Portland Spring Home & Garden Show. In addition the club is involved in a range of activities designed to create a campus environment conducive to fostering a better understanding of the value of the exterior landscape between the OSU community and plants. The club also engages in activities that sharpen their acumen in areas such as plant installation, equipment operation and hardscaping. These efforts culminate in the National Association of Landscape Professionals annual National Collegiate Landscape competition. Much of the club's fund raising efforts are geared towards sending a team of students to this event.
