  • ROCHESTER, Minn. – It’s a partnership that will leave both parties better off.

    Students with the horticulture department at Rochester Community and Technical College will be working on the grounds at the international airport.

    It took 18 months to come to an agreement but soon, students will be working right outside the main entrance at the airport.

    Those with the program say this is vital to their education. “This is a really unique opportunity because it’s such a large commercial property that has a lot of different elements of design and maintenance you don’t get in the residential community,” Student Ryan Brick says.

    Brick says the development shouldn’t take long to finish once they begin.
