The Cuyamaca College Ornamental Horticulture renovation includes plans to replace an aging greenhouse with two modern ones with environmental controls and computer-controlled irrigation. The upgraded greenhouses and facilities will mean more plants, flowers and shrubbery to sell in the retail nursery operated by the program.

August 12, 2019 (El Cajon) -- A groundbreaking to be held Aug. 22 marks the start of a $16.7 million project that will renovate indoor and outdoor classrooms and facilities, and add new greenhouses for Cuyamaca College’s signature Ornamental Horticulture program. The groundbreaking ceremony is set for 9 a.m. at the college’s Building M site. To attend, RSVP to email@example.com.
“This Proposition V-funded project is a milestone for the campus because of the significance of the program and its link to the history of Cuyamaca College,” President Julianna Barnes said in reference to the $398 million construction bond measure passed by East County voters in 2012 to improve and add facilities at Cuyamaca and Grossmont colleges. “Ornamental Horticulture has a storied past at our college and it is long overdue for a renovation. With the modernizing of facilities and the new greenhouses in particular, students have a lot to be excited about.”
