Student Focus: HSU Greenhouse Club

Student Focus logoThe Greenhouse Club was established to help fund the Dr. Walker Greenhouse on the HSU campus, as well as to gather a group of like-minded plant lovers to care for the many species living there and learn more about plants in general. The Greenhouse contains the largest botanical collection in the California State University system, consisting of over 1,000 plant species in 187 families.

Club activities include propagation workshops, nature walks, plant based potlucks, plant sales, and club meetings designed to help create a community of educated horticulturalists. Everyone is welcome—from avid gardeners to students who have never taken care of a plant (but are interested in doing so). At the end of the day, our club’s goal is educate and create a greater sense of value for the all the unique plants around us as well as establish new friendships to enjoy that value with.
