Quick quiz: What department at Michigan State University has the best garden? Horticulture, you guess? NOPE! Radiology! The story is (and I don’t know how much of this is actually true, but this is the story I heard) that the university wanted to hire a rock-star to run the department, and he happened to be a garden lover. To convince him to take the job, the university promised him a garden, and boy, did he get one! The building is surrounded by a garden that, if you ask me, probably does as much or more healing as all the high-tech equipment inside the building.
