Careers in Horticulture

The American Society for Horticulture Science wants you to know about the career opportunities in Horticulture.


Horticulture is the art and science of growing plants. It is the food we eat, the landscapes we live and play in, the environments we thrive in. It is the business of managing and using what we grow, while maintaining the health of our soil, air, and water, and the well-being of our children, our communities, and our world.

Seed Your Future is a movement that seeks to excite youth about careers in horticulture by putting a human face on our core beliefs: horticulture is universal, invaluable, and above all, horticulture is life.
