Palo Alto College’s Landscape and Horticultural Science program has earned accreditation from the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), which sponsors the industry accreditation, driven by the needs of the landscape industry, according to a June 21 Alamo College press release.

“We sought the PLANET accreditation as a way to raise the professionalism of our Landscape and Horticultural Science program to a national standard,” said Kirk Williams, lead instructor for Palo Alto’s horticulture programs.

It is the only nationally recognized endorsement offered to colleges and universities with landscape/horticulture programs, and 28 are currently PLANET accredited.

College personnel spent two years aligning its courses and degree plans to PLANET’s education standards.

Members of the site visit team were from Minnesota, Illinois, and San Antonio.

Palo Alto offers short-term certificates in Basic Landscape Management, Basic Nursery and Landscape Operations, Floral Design Technician, Small/Organic Farmer, and Turf and Landscape Irrigation. Some of the certificates can be applied toward associate degrees in Turfgrass and Golf Course Management and in Landscape and Horticultural Science.

The campus is located at 1400 W. Villaret Blvd. at I-410 South and S.H. 16 or online at alamo.edu/pac.

For more information about the horticulture programs at Palo Alto, call Kirk Williams at 210-486-3073 or kwilliams@alamo.edu.
