PLANET

PLANET, the Professional Landcare Network, is an international association serving lawn care professionals, exterior maintenance contractors, installation/design/build professionals, and interiorscapers. PLANET provides its members with a good business foundation to help them evaluate, plan, and better manage their companies. Our goal is to help students be better prepared to enter the industry upon graduation through networking, education and related trips.

The PLANET Student Chapter is open to all Plant Science majors who have an interest in horticulture. The club has monthly meetings; some of which are social and others that are devoted to guest speakers. In addition, the club participates in the national PLANET Student Career Days, sending a team to compete in 25 landscape related events, e.g. landscape design, business management, woody and perennial ID, equipment operation, etc. There are also opportunities for members to participate in field trips and national conferences.
