A Legacy of Learning - The Elisabeth C. Miller Library

The Miller Library is an integral part of the Center for Urban Horticulture, made possible by the hard work of many people. The stories featured here tell how the library developed, describe emotions around the event of the 2001 Earth Liberation Front bombing, and give insight to the garden and personality of Elisabeth “Betty” Miller, the namesake of the library.
