Hort Club holds several plant sales throughout the year: the Winter Holiday Sale, the Spring Sale, and other houseplant sales. Students grow and propagate most of the plants sold at these events themselves. Every year, Hort Club takes an educational trip to learn more about the horticulture industry and plant diversity. Previous destinations include New York City, Hawaii, San Diego, and Miami. In 2012, the club traveled to California and visited the area surrounding San Diego. Proceeds from the plant sales completely cover the costs of these trips. Hort Club holds other group activities throughout the year, such as floral-design workshops, pumpkin carving, apple picking, hands on activites in plant breeding, and maintaining an aquaponics system.
