Tampa, FL, 7/10/14 – David Conner + Associates (DCA) is proud to announce that the Wilmot Healing Gardens at the University of Florida has won the Award of Merit from the Florida Chapter of the America Society of Landscape Architects. Wilmot Garden’s story is the preservation of an historic garden on the UF campus and its transformation from neglect into a place for healing. Since 2007, David Conner + Associates has assisted UF with the transformation. In 2012, DCA provided services leading to a benefactor who funded the creation of a recently completed Greenhouse facility on the garden site. This greenhouse is now home to the new UF Therapeutic Horticulture curriculum. DCA is currently working on The J W Reitz Student Union Expansion project, the Harrell Medical Education Building, Heavener Hall, Cypress Hall Single Student Housing, and the PK Yonge Middle and High School at the University of Florida.
