After opening to the public last year, we are excited to see how Houston Botanic Garden is being used and appreciated by the local community. In this Spotlight, we are delighted to show a few examples and stories of how the Garden is being enjoyed by Houstonians from all walks of life. The Culinary Garden marks the last piece of the first phase of the Houston Botanic Garden masterplan, a multi-phased plan to transform a former 132-acre golf course into an island of discovery. More information and a full list of credits for the entire project, available on the project page: Houston Botanic Garden – Phase One
