Europe: Flowers and Photography

Learn how to create stunning videos and photographs while exploring all aspects of the floral industry on a three-week journey to the Netherlands, Belgium, and France.

About the Program

This adventure through Europe’s rich horticultural history begins in Amsterdam with a visit to the world-renowned Keukenhof Spring Gardens, known as the “Garden of Europe,” the largest tulip bulb planting in the world.

Traveling through Delft, Antwerp, Bruges and Brussels, students will visit gardens and historic sites including the famed Werelderfgoed Kinderdijk windmills and enjoy a chocolate-making workshop in Belgium before boarding a train for Paris, the City of Lights. In France, students will immerse themselves in the music, history, art and beauty of Paris and take day trips to Giverny and Versailles for visits to the Claude Monet house and the stunning Versailles Palace and gardens. The trip culminates with a visit to the Louvre, a boat ride on the Seine and a nighttime stroll to the Eiffel Tower.

Students who take this unique and breathtaking tour will return home with cultural experiences, practical skills and valuable knowledge that will inspire them to create  captivating media that highlights the value of horticulture to culture and society.
