The handiwork of students from two CVTC programs was on display for large audiences during the 34th annual Home & Garden Show, held recently at the Eau Claire Indoor Sports Center.

More than 4,500 people attended this year’s Home & Garden Show, an event organized each year by the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association.

Among the more than 220 booths at this year’s show was one jointly produced by students from CVTC’s Landscape, Plant, and Turf Management and Residential Construction programs.

Susan Frame, CVTC’s Landscape, Plant, and Turf Management instructor, explained that her students designed an “arbor” for display at the show. She credited instructor Brian Barth and his Residential Construction students with doing an outstanding job in turning that design into a finished product.  Those students built two arbors, each consisting of a cedar arch with a bench in the middle and planters on either side. 

“The arbor is designed to be used as an entrance to a garden or as a place inside a garden where people can sit and admire their surroundings,” Frame said.

During the Home & Garden Show, the arbors were sold via a raffle, resulting in more than $1,000 in proceeds each for CVTC’s Horticulture Club and the Residential Construction program, Frame said.
“So it was a very worthwhile project for us financially, but that’s not why we participate in the show each year,” she said.

The main goal in CVTC’s participation is providing students a chance to network with the many potential employers involved in the show, Frame said. “And,” she added, “it’s a great way to promote our programs to the public.”
