Mills College Landscape Tour

I've been meaning to walk through the Mills College campus in the Oakland Hills for sometime now and finally got around to it yesterday. The campus is beautifully landscaped, has two LEED platinum buildings, a native botanical garden, and a medicinal plant walk. Enjoy the tour! 

The campus chapel with a gorgeous skylight. 

A Spanish style courtyard with a tiled fountain. 

The green roof atop the school of business with euphorbias, echevaria, aloes and various succulents 

A beautiful and cushy lawn alternative = a fescue meadow. 

Along the healing plant tour we stopped at the willow. 

A thriving food garden.
