Rollins Art Classroom Extends to Mead Garden

Mead Botanical Garden is the focal point for Professor Rachel Simmons and Dana Hardgrove’s freshman art classes.

The entire class of 40 walk together from the college campus with their paints, sketch pads, and cameras in hand. These newcomers from around the world, are becoming familiar with their new college town and their local garden.

Volunteer profile: Nancy Tyree

  Back in the day, Nancy Tyree recalls, she would escape to Mead Garden at lunch time to relax in nature and rejuvenate before having to go back to work -- and sometimes find herself returning a little late! Retired since 2007, Nancy still comes to the garden regularly to relax, now as a Garden volunteer.
