Triton’s Secret Botanical Garden

By Lisa Files

Triton may be in the middle of a concrete jungle, but it boasts a secret garden.  Hidden behind the Robert M. Collins Center (R Building) is not only a formal Botanical Garden with brick paths and brightly colored flowers and shrubs, but also a corn field and vegetable garden.  If you are able to find Triton’s secret garden, you might even think you’d landed in Nebraska.

Some of this lovely outdoor greenery is the handiwork of the Horticulture—Landscape Design Department, which offers a two-year degree program and three certificate programs.  Those interested in even more, can join the Student Horticulture Club and/or the Community Horticulture Club.  The latter is very active, inviting speakers, organizing field trips, plant exchanges, floral competitions, and garden walks for those who love plants and the environment.  Meetings are at 2:30p.m., the second Tuesday of every month in B130-C.
