Steve is very active in teaching during the short turf program and the two year program. Bruce Crawford is now the director of the Rutgers Garden and teaches the Principles of Landscape Design course with Dominic Mondi and Bruce Neary is the course coordinator in quite a few programs.

The green roof idea is a good suggestion, but in keeping with the Rutgers tradition, we would need an instructor that has extensive experience in that subject, and there are not a lot of those folks out there yet. Lot's of folks with ideas and suggestions, but not a great deal of research or track record.

glad to hear all those guys are still around and teaching. doc is legend for sure (your idea is not valid, lol!) and derron was just starting as an intern back when i was there.....really nice guy as i recall. i learned a lot from all those guys.

i hear you on the green roofs...i do think its gonna be a big thing in the next 5-10 years...that in conjnction with water conservation.
