International Horticulture - Summer 2014

Here we are again...27 Aggies ready to spend five memorable weeks at the Santa Chiara Study Center in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy. I am excited and honored to have the opportunity again to showcase la mia terra, my land, with its horticultural and cultural marvels, to Texas A&M students. Keep checking this website for the next five weeks to read their impressions.

  1. Leo,

    I hope you all have a wonderful trip. I recently communicated with the students from the Horticulture in Italy trip last year, and they all have commented that it was a life changing experience that they never forget and cherish forever. They all want to go back, one commenting that they think of the trip daily and frequently go through the picture form the trip. So please, take lots of pictures!


    1. Thanks for your comment, Paul. It is nice to hear that last year's students still think that they had a great time. Thanks again to you and Millie for stepping in last year, especially because I know it was not always easy. I find it very rewarding for me to contribute to the students personal growth and happiness. I just hope hope that I get to keep doing this :-)
