Greenmount Campus facilities
The resources at Greenmount Campus are unique in Ireland for floristry education and training. The Campus has excellent purpose built teaching facilities including two floristry studios within the Richardsons Walled Garden. The studios have dedicated space for cut flower identification and conditioning, refrigerated display storage and design demonstration and practice. They also have retail display windows and a gift wrapping / customer service area.
A range of summer cut flower crops are grown at the Campus Horticulture Development Centre for development and demonstration to growers and florists. Floristry students can see at first hand how cut flowers, foliage and pot plant crops are produced using modern production methods. Eighteen hectares of amenity grounds at Greenmount Campus provide excellent opportunity to extend plant knowledge.
