Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Data Center Description
Growing from its humble beginnings as an ash dump in the late
1800s, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden has come to represent today
the very best in urban gardening and horticultural display.

The mission of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is to serve all the
people in its community and throughout the world by:

Displaying plants and practicing the high art of horticulture to
provide a beautiful and hospitable setting for the delight and
inspiration of the public.

Engaging in research in plant sciences to expand human knowledge
of plants, and disseminating the results to science
professionals and the general public.

Teaching children and adults about plants at a popular level, as
well as making available instruction in the exacting skills
required to grow plants and make beautiful gardens.

Reaching out to help the people of all our diverse urban
neighborhoods to enhance the quality of their surroundings and
their daily lives through the cultivation and enjoyment of
plants.

Seeking actively to arouse public awareness of the fragility of
our natural environment, both local and global, and providing
information about ways to conserve and protect it.
