Sometimes it takes world news to learn about something cool on your own campus:
A group of profs and students in the School of Architecture, along with a couple NGOs, took a 1000 square foot piece of concrete (there are lots of awful concrete plazas around) and <a href=”http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7482670.stm” target=”_blank”>turned it into a container garden to produce food for those who need it.</a>
Also check out the <a href=”http://www.mcgill.ca/mchg/projects/ediblecampus/” target=”_blank”>Edible Campus webpage</a>, and especially, scroll down and <a href=”http://www.mcgill.ca/files/mchg/MakingtheEdibleCampus.pdf” target=”_blank”>download their .pdf brochure</a>, which is fascinating.
do you know if any classes are integrating the garden into their curricula?
I think it’s a bunch of Architecture students and faculty, but I don’t know about anything curricular.
