A free information session and tour of Kwantlen Polytehnic University's school of horticulture facilities is being offered Wednesday, June 10 and Saturday, July 18.

The event is intended for prospective students who will be able to tour the Langley campus' facilities, meet students, faculty and alumni, and discover the school's programs, facilities and resources.

Horticulturalists produce fruits, flowers and plants, make their
communities more liveable, enhance sustainability in their communities,
design, install and maintain parks and gardens, and ensure safe and
