Public horticulture program celebrates 45 years of partnership with Longwood Gardens
Founded in 1967, the program represents a unique educational partnership between UD and Longwood Gardens. A hallmark of the program is its interdisciplinary nature, with students customizing their curriculum to enhance their professional and personal goals. The program also requires and encourages the integration of Fellows into Longwood staff, as well as volunteering at other gardens in the region, and participation on boards of other organizations.
"The success of the Longwood Graduate Program is anchored in the incredible partnership between UD and Longwood Gardens," comments Bob Lyons, director of UD's Longwood Graduate Program in Public Horticulture. "The synergy resulting from both institutions provides an unmatched experience for our current students, and the networking amongst the alumni has developed a strong bond among all the Longwood Graduate Program Fellows, who never hesitate to help one another."
