Wilcox and Jason A. Perch Ornamental horticulture students, staff and faculty took an informative field trip to an EP Henry manufacturing plant in Parker Ford and the Hershey Gardens in Hershey on Thursday. ” The EP Henry plant gave the students a look into the manufacturing of the types of pavers and retaining-wall products that they so often design and install in the landscape,” horticulture instructor Carl J. Bower Jr. said. “The next stop was Hershey Gardens, where we met up with 2010 graduate Alyssa B. Richner, who is in charge of the children’s garden within the gardens.” She and her staff gave the students an overview of the gardens; Richner also showed off the children’s section and described the challenges and joys of her job. “Although the sun didn’t shine most of the day, the spirits weren’t dampened as they enjoyed the gardens and got a whole new insight into some critical landscape products,” Bower said.
