I am Professor Robert Farnsworth. I am a full time professor, and also the Department Co-Chair of Horticulture and Landscape Design. Welcome! We in Horticulture and Landscape Design care a great deal for your success here at Saddleback College.

Horticulture dates back 3000 years. It is still hugely important today. It is the art and science of growing fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs, grapes, (think food for the planet) and ornamental plants.

I also invite you to consider our program in Landscape Design'.The drought has given rise to a significant increase in the demand for sustainable design; a cornerstone of our Department's programming. If you are considering upgrading your skills in your career, or if you are considering an exciting new career, definitely check out Landscape Design!!.
