Horticulture Center
(309) 438-3496

The 10-acre Horticulture Center is a recent addition to the Agriculture Department at Illinois State University. The Center provides a focal point and support for horticultural instruction and scholarship, as well as public demonstration and outreach. 

Community members can take part in our many events offered throughout the year. Our students are actively engaged in their experiences and learn from top-notch faculty. Future development will entail a building that will contain classrooms, offices, labs, greenhouses and several gardens.
