The Horticulture Forum Club is a non-profit organization and chartered club of NMSU. We welcome all students from all departments on the NMSU campus. Our mission is to help the student body become familiar with horticulture and floriculture procedures on all levels including turf, xeric, succulents, and ornamental landscape plants.

Chartered with NMSU since 1971...we are a club designed to encourage Horticulture students or any individuals with interest in caring for plants to come together and share ideas, theories, experiences as well as plan events to share our combined knowledge with the community. As a group we gather species and grow a wide variety of succulents, edibles, and flowering plants for indoor and outdoor purposes. During the semester we organize plant sales on campus as well events around Las Cruces. We also set up workshops with professors to gain expertise on propagation, plant and soil health, medicinal plants, and focus on learning what conditions are suitable for a given species. We want to share our knowledge to the community of Las Cruces and strive to implement sustainable landscapes utilizing native plant species; promoting pollinators within our diverse regional micro-climate(s).

Come and join us, we are always looking forward to having new members come by! The Horticulture Forum meets every Thursday from 5:00pm-6:00pm at greenhouse #584 located off campus at Fabian Garcia Science Center 113 W University Ave for the 2017 fall semester.
