In 2021, Cornell students engaged in active learning with Cornell Botanic Gardens, and extended their new knowledge into the campus and broader communities.

They created interactive garden installations, hosted plant sales and plant seminars, restored delicate ecosystems, planned and delivered educational programs, and visited the grounds with their Cornell classes.

Through these activities and with the guidance of expert staff, student collaborators took their leadership skills to a higher level, all while having fun and connecting with the natural world.

Watch growth and energy unfold in this video capturing a year of learning at Cornell Botanic Gardens.
