"It’s one of the few hands-on horticulture training programs in the world, and in my opinion, the best. What sets The New York Botanical Garden’s two-year program apart from colleges and universities that offer a horticulture major is that it allows students to work alongside horticulture staff to gain real-world experience.”

- Luis Marmol, SOPH Class of 2012
