Horticulture Research Center

UVM's Horticulture Research Center (HRC) is a 97-acre facility used for agricultural research, by Plant & Soil Science classes, by student groups, such as Common Ground, and by professional plant organizations and gardening groups.  For over 50 years, University horticulturists have been testing new and unusual plants for their adaptation to the Vermont environment, especially to our cold winters.

Everyone doing research, working or taking classes at the HRC is required to Login and complete the Horticulture Research Farm Safety Training.

Depending on your job duties or the type of work you will be performing at the HRC, there may be more task-specific safety training required.  Those driving UVM-owned farm vehicles must complete Driver Safety Training.

See the Safety Training webpage in order to complete any additional online and classroom training that is required.
