Situated on our Murdoch campus is a centre of excellence in horticulture and pivotal to student's learning for service delivery is the Murdoch Student Garden Centre.
Students work through each semester propagating natives, herbs and some exotic plants suitable to WA's climate in preparation for sale at the renowned Murdoch Student Garden Centre Plant Sales.
On sale day, shoppers can purchase plants and potting mix made by students, and test the students knowledge in plant care advice. Students also get hands-on experience in planning the sales including merchandising, promotions and social media and in servicing purchases in a retail setting. For the May sale, Floristry students make available a range of Mother's Day gift arrangements for purchase through the Garden Centre.
Dates for the sales are approximately May and November each year, with details of time and location and plant list released via the Murdoch Student Garden Centre Facebook page and via their e-newsletter.
Cash and EFTPOS is accepted for Garden Centre purchases.
