Growing Innovation

This diverse garden project allows students, faculty, and the greater Nordonia community to work together to renovate the large courtyard off the IMC. Our hope is to create a series of teaching gardens, beginning with the raised beds built in 2010, adding a rain garden and butterfly garden in 2011, and utility shed and wetland garden in 2012.

ANNOUNCEMENT: We are looking for volunteers to work on a wetland garden, and possibly a shelter. We will be weeding, raking, digging, planting, and building this Spring. Please come and join us!

Work Days: TBA
