Student Activities - PLANET

The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) Student Career Days are annual, three day meetings of horticulture students from around the country.  At this event, students compete in skill-based events directly related to Green Industry Careers including landscape installation, plant identification, paver and patio installation, bidding and estimating, and landscape design.  They also attend a Career Fair where students meet prospective employers from around the country and find out about potential employment opportunities.  PLANET is held in a different location in the country each year which provides students with the opportunity to see new plants and horticultural techniques.  They also network with students from over sixty colleges and universities at this event.  Our student teams have enjoyed and benefited from these trips.
