"In the business that I'm in—growing and selling seed—we understand the importance of the operations area. The work of the Arboretum is much the same—there's so much preparation that goes on behind the scenes so what the public sees is even more beautiful. The fact that the Arboretum is investing in critical areas such as South Farm shows a focus on the long term that is commendable."
The Morton Arboretum Board of Trustees, President and CEO of Ball Horticultural Co.
"I support the Children's Garden because it provides a wonderful learning experience for children. Children are so used to being told not to touch things. But in the Children's Garden, we encourage them to touch. They learn best when they can use all of their senses."
