A new garden space for students, faculty, and staff members by the MH Wong Building.
Read the full project description
The project's aim is to green underutilized space at the M. H. Wong building facing Doctor Penfield Ave by establishing several raised bed gardens to grow produce. The garden space will be open to all students and staff of the Wong building to enjoy as an opportunity to learn, participate, de-stress, and exercise by working in the garden space. The harvests from the garden will likely be used in department social events such as the monthly summer BBQ or given to students or staff that express a need or interest in taking some of the yield.
The mandate of this garden space is as follows:
(1) To provide space for gardening that can promote mental wellbeing and physical health, as well as create social and educational opportunities about sustainability
(2) To grow produce that can possibly be used for community member social events
(3) To add aesthetic value on a side of the building that is barren
