This annual event is hosted by the FVTC agriculture department for Wisconsin FFA high school chapters. Students participate in career development activities like dairy/livestock judging, meat evaluation, agricultural mechanics, farm business management, horticulture, natural resources, veterinary science and much more.
The Hartling Family Rose Garden at FVTC’s Appleton Campus is a living memorial to Bill Hartling, a master rosarian and late husband of FVTC retiree Jeanne Hartling. The roses were once part of Bill’s collection, and are now maintained by the Fox Valley Rose Society and students in FVTC’s Horticulture program. The garden is a spot for all students, staff and community members to come and enjoy some quiet time.
