Sustainable Landscape Team
Many dedicated students from diverse backgrounds worked on the Sustainable Landscape Maintenance project since January 2011. Reflecting a variety of majors, they shared an interest in making our campus landscape cleaner, healthier and more sustainable. Because of their vision and hard work, the methods developed in the project have been adopted on 1/3 of campus lawns, and spraying with hazardous herbicides has been discontinued on all campus lawns. Mayleen Farrington continues with the project in the role of Implementation Coordinator as our methods are applied across campus.
Congratulations and thanks to all of the students who worked on this project and made this possible!
