Nancy Nieland is curator of the Osborne Garden. After completing a BBG horticulture internship, Nancy Nieland joined the staff as a gardener’s aide in 2005.

They are transported from a busy city street to the vast green Osborne Garden.” Before joining BBG, Nancy studied horticultural therapy and was a gardener at the landscaping company Blondie’s Treehouse in Mamaroneck, New York. She is a master composter and teaches turf management and groundcovers in BBG’s Horticulture Certificate Program.
