Suwan Agriculture High School Tour
Today we took a tour of Suwan Agriculture and Science High School. The school has a major focus on horticulture, which is the aspect we saw most of on our tour. The campus was beautiful, with sculpted trees and gardens throughout the school. We walked through several greenhouses, each of which had its own separate climate tempered to the plants growing in them.
It was so interesting to see a small desert growing in a greenhouse in Korea! All of the landscaping in the greenhouses was done by the students, as well as the care and maintenance of the plants. There were ornamental plants, like a whole greenhouse full of different varieties of orchids! There were also greenhouses full of vegetables, like eggplant, squash, lettuce, cabbage, peppers, and an assortment of other plants. My favorite greenhouse was the one full of bonsai plants! The plants were so beautifully and artfully designed, and I wanted to take a picture of every single one of them!
