Richard Benfield is chair of the Department of Geography at CCSU. A visit to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania awakened his interest in gardens as tourist attractions. Since 1997 he has been researching the topic of garden tourism, and today brings his presentation “Great Botanical Gardens of the World” to Prosser, with the co-sponsorship of the Dun-Land-Woods Garden Club of Bloomfield. Benfield is also the author of Garden Tourism, published in 2013.
