Educational Spring Break for Horticulture Students

George Thomas, Horticulture Instructor, took interested students on a field trip to Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. Here George arranged for the students to expand their horizons with reviews of hundreds of new plant species and varieties and discussions lead by internationally recognized experts such as Dr. Allan Armitage of the University of Georgia's Horticulture Department.
Students observed many dazzling displays of horticultural collections including orchids, azaleas, and other species too numerous to mention here.
Callaway Gardens, a stunning 13,000-acre garden, offers the perfect setting for horticulture students. Callaway Gardens' landscape explodes with beautiful displays of over 20,000 azaleas, plus mountain laurel, dogwoods, daffodils and daisies.
