SUNY Farmingdale School of Horticulture

I imagine the horticulture students at SUNY Farmingdale are inspired while studying and working their grounds, much like we hort interns are at Brooklyn Botanic. Though only a fraction of the size, they manage to showcase a variety of design styles and plants in their different gardens.

A lush tropical garden is only a minutes walk from an old greenhouse that might inspire ideas about the view both looking in and out of windows. (These just happen to be missing glass.) There are beds to double-dig and annuals to plant and watch grow.

And of course there are trees to wonder at like the Golden Larch pictured below with one branch showing signs of fall color. Again, it seems that everywhere you go in horticulture people are excited about what they do and excited to share their knowledge with you. That's always a nice thing.
