Get Your Garden Ready!
Play in the ‘dirt’ this spring! ‘Plant Biology for Gardeners’ will be given at the Providence campus. This 3-credit course will teach you what’s happening when your plants grow, from seed to producing stems and leaves, and then forming flowers and fruit. (Many ‘vegetables’ are actually fruits!) You’ll learn that ‘soil,’ and not ‘dirt’ is what you plant in and play with. You’ll learn about fertilizers and competition and plant adaptations. This course, Plant Science (PLS) 150 is not only for gardeners, but also gardener wannabees. Gardeners, take it as a stand-alone course to learn more about your plants. CCE students, take it to fulfill a Natural Science requirement or as a general education elective. The course meets once weekly on Tuesdays, 4 to 6:45 p.m. at the Shepard Building. An added bonus, unheard of for a science course, is that the textbook costs less than $20.00. Standard tuition rate is $311 per credit, for $933 total cost. You should complete registration by January 14, to ensure that the course is not cancelled. The first class is on Tuesday Jan. 27, 2009, and the last is April 28, with spring vacation the week of March 16.
