Community Garden
All are welcome to help care for the vegetables, herbs, and flowers growing at the end of Old Farm Road. The goal of our botanic and community garden is to cultivate a place where students, staff, and faculty can share in the delights and pleasures of gardening. The first Botanic garden was created in 1545 to help medical students distinguish the differences between plants of therapeutic value and ‘imposters,’ in 2015 we are continuing the tradition first established a half a century ago by the Orto Botanico di Podova, where Vesalius taught and Falloppio studied. Please check out www.facebook.com/NYMCgarden for updates or just drop by to get dirty.
