Triton Community Horticulture Club (TCHC)
The Triton Community Horticulture Club was founded in 1969 with a membership of nine students. George Weyland was our first president, starting a fine tradition for all to follow. Because there are many hard working people in the club, it is one of the most active and oldest clubs on the campus, providing both social and service opportunities for its members. The focus of the club is the preservation and protection of wildlife and plant materials, issues affecting the environment and the conservation of natural resources. The friendship, genuine love of flora and fauna and the willingness to share their wealth of knowledge is the hallmark of the Triton Community Horticulture Club members.
Formerly under the direction of Don Newcomb and later under the direction of Ken Benson, the club has continued to grow and flourish. One of our aims is to provide yearly scholarships to horticulture students. We are also dedicated to making improvements that are needed in the Triton Botanical Gardens. We are justifiably proud that over the years we have purchased a rototiller, installed a sprinkling system and planted many trees in the Garden, in addition to purchasing tables and shelving for the Triton Greenhouse. More recently, we have begun to purchase Memorial Bricks for the Pathway to Success area in commemoration of our deceased members and as a way to help support a special project on campus. It has always been our goal to promote a love of plants and an understanding of the environment through our club programs, qualified speakers, group field trips, plant exchanges and floral competitions, garden walks, and horticulture classes.
Membership is open to persons of all ages, both students and interested members of the community, who enjoy plants and flowers, whether it be growing and studying them or hearing a lecture at our meetings.
Annual Membership Dues: Horticulture Students: $8 ● Community Members: $12.
