Boots 'n Blooms

This event is rooted in collaboration and team work. Boots 'n Blooms is a testament to Friends of the Garden, a mighty group of green thumb volunteers who have donated countless hours of their time over the last decade to help maintain the gardens on campus.

The 2016 event will focus on our Alumni Gardens, one of our original, showcase gardens in preparation for the upcoming prom and wedding season as well as the Rock Garden and in and around the MacRae Library.
