US (PA): New horticulture center under construction at central Pa. college

A new building is under construction on York College of Pennsylvania’s campus. The college is constructing the building on its campus to accommodate its Environmental Horticulture program.

The two-story Appell Horticulture Center will include a soil laboratory, a plant/insect laboratory, a plant pathology laboratory, a student research laboratory, a herbarium, preparation rooms, study areas, meeting rooms, faculty offices, and support spaces. 
“This is essential in order for us to deliver the program beginning next fall,” Charles MacVean, dean of the Kinsley School of Engineering, Sciences, and Technology, said in a news release. “Thanks to generous collaboration from the Biology Department, we have been able to temporarily house the Horticulture program in existing classrooms and labs. However, the new facilities are necessary to deliver advanced components of the major.”

The center is currently under construction and is scheduled to open for the fall semester.
