Spring Bedding Plant Sale
Our yearly spring bedding plant sale is the major fundraiser for the field trips that the DMACC Horticulture Club attend. These field trips are important experiences to expose students to the diverse horticultural opportunities throughout the Midwest. The spring bedding plant sale also provides hands on opportunities for the students to increase their plant production skills.
This year the bedding plant sale will be housed in the greenhouses at the DMACC Ankeny campus. The tentative sale dates are April 25-27 from 8:30am-3:30pm. We have an assortment of bedding plants to choose from.
Expand your horizons! Participate in conferences with other college students gaining knowledge from professionals in the Horticulture Industry. Seminars are valuable sources of information.

Let's go on a road trip! Summer and fall trips are offered to students for a chance to network with professionals. Trips provide an important opportunity to observe the diversity of the Horticulture Industry. We travel to St. Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Omaha, Chicago and the Quad Cities.
We work hard but we play hard! Along with monthly potluck meetings, students participate in numerous activities such as Earth Day, design and build the display at the
Iowa State Fair,
plant sales (green plants, poinsettias, spring bedding, Valentine arrangements), campus flower beds, interior plant-scapes, and many more.
