Horticulture Unit

The Mt. SAC Horticulture Unit has a 10-acre wholesale production nursery. The nursery is mainly student operated, and money from plant purchases is used to support our program. We mainly produce large tropicals and palms, but we also produce limited supplies of perennials and houseplants. We also have an annual poinsettia sale, mother's day sale in the campus quad, and Spring and Fall plant sales at Descanso Gardens.
