As a junior majoring in landscape architecture at Temple's Ambler Campus, Jake Williams already had classroom experience with landscape design theory. As a longtime employee for commercial landscapers, he had years of practical experience with property maintenance. What he hadn't yet experienced was how the two could combine so beautifully in one place, until he landed an internship at Winterthur, an expanse of botanical gardens about 35 miles west of Philadelphia. "As a landscaper I did a lot of grass-cutting and leaf-blowing, but now…every day I'm doing something different, so I never get bored," he said.
