Horticulture Center

Grass on the ground and plants on the roof are all starting to take root at the new Horticulture Center at Bloomfield Farm.  Here are a few pictures as an update to the progress in completing the Horticulture Center, taken by Morris Arboretum Director Paul Meyer. 

Looking at the garage bay, we can see a few of the green features, including the green roof that is beginning to grow as well as the above ground cisterns.  The cisterns will allow water to be collected from the roofs and reused for irrigation in dry times.

The front of the new Horticulture Center is complete with a bench on the patio.
