Hannah Cortazzo, Horticulturist
Horticulturist/gardener Hannah Cortazzo is a transplanted New Yorker (no pun intended!). Growing up on a rare private property within the preserved lands and river system of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri, Hannah says she never took nature for granted. Her love of plants, flowers and trees is on display in her workplace – the magnificent Conservatory Garden at New York City’s Central Park. Its 6-acre Italian, French and English gardens are filled with 27 flowering plants, shrubs and trees.
