Each fall, associate professor Frank Rossi introduces students to plants grown for food, beverages, fiber, aesthetics and recreation in HORT 1101 (Horticultural Science and Systems). Last Friday, with the help of associate professor and greenhouse horticulture specialist Neil Mattson, those students got a firsthand look at the various operations at Kenneth Post Lab greenhouses, including viewing poinsettias grown by Hortus Forum, Cornell’s undergraduate horticulture club and Wee Stinky, the about-to-bloom titan arum that is part of the Liberty Hyde Bailey Hortorium‘s collection.

From Erica Anderson, MPS candidate, Graduate Field of Horticulture:

Last week, students in the course, ”Berry Crops: Culture and Management” (HORT 4420), taught by Marvin Pritts, visited Grisamore Farms in Locke, N.Y. — one of many field trips they’ve taken this semester. Above, they view a field of blueberry bushes turning brilliant red.

botanical fashion showOn Monday, six students in the Art of Horticulture (HORT 2010) modeled outfits they fashioned from various plant materials for other students in the course, and answered their classmates’ questions about their materials and process.

Creations ranged from a lion’s mane headdress to an ensemble portraying the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone.

While the abundant fall foliage was a popular foundation material, other plant materials used by the students included grass seedheads, willow branches, hot peppers, pine needles, mosses, birch bark, citrus skins, acorn caps, various flowers and leaves and more.

From Justine Vandenheuvel, associate professor, Horticulture Section:

The HORT 2205 (Grapes to Wines lab class) went to Long Island the weekend of October 4-5 to learn about the growing grape and wine industry there. We visited with Alice Wise, viticulturist with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County at the Long Island Horticultural Research & Extension Center, Riverhead, N.Y., to learn about her research and extension program. We also had stops at the Shinn Estate Vineyards, and Channing Daughters Winery (co-owned and managed by Cornell alum Larry Perrine).
