Home Horticulture Certificate (HHC): Intro to the Home Horticulture Certificate


The Home Horticulture Certificate (HHC) is a comprehensive horticultural education program that takes participants on an educational journey through fourteen weeks of classroom instruction. Class lectures are hosted weekly on Zoom, and are taught by URI Cooperative Extension faculty and staff topic experts. Students are supported by an undergraduate teaching assistant, who provides assistance with the online learning management system and navigating “school.” Weekly “Try This” assignments and a hands-on, practical course project focused on landscape observation and analysis draws the concepts learned in class together, culminating with a project showcase and discussion session. See the 2024 course schedule for a list of weekly lecture topics and practicum sessions.
