    Celebrating 50 Years

    SCC’s School of Horticulture is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2021! Through numerous grants and private gifts fostered by the SCC Foundation, SCC’s Giles Campus has become a nationally-recognized arboretum that includes four greenhouses, a nursery production area, several unique ornamental gardens, an outdoor lab complex, and SCC’s Center for Sustainable Agriculture. These facilities provide hands-on learning experiences that equip SCC students with the knowledge and skills that they need to thrive in horticultural and agricultural careers after graduation. SCC’s annual Arboretum Adventures highlights the beauty of the SCC Arboretum and the College’s contribution to the horticultural industry across the Southeast while raising funds for the Jimmy Painter Horticulture Scholarship.
