Life of a Garden Walk

The Life of a Garden Tours are given by students in Professor Candice Galen's Capstone class. Students spent the semester researching literary, historical and scientific resources to examine the "lives" of several notable gardens at MU, real and imagined. As they explored the different fates possible for the garden based on their readings of the literature and understanding of the science, they made notes and saw the garden with fresh eyes. The tours will be the student's demonstrations of what they learned.
