Somehow gardening follows me around. I’m currently working on two projects involving growing in the city. One is our studio project, my group is involved with making urban gardening go vertical. We want to make it easier for urban dwellers with limited space or a concrete backyard to have their own Victory Garden, an increasingly popular revival. To learn more about the project and classmates projects, check out FarmPhilly.com.
I’m the president of our school’s sustainability initiative, Remedy, which strives for smarter lifestyles on campus. We’re working on building a roof top garden on one of our school buildings, the Gershman Y. Although we’re currently fighting through the bureaucratic system, we have a lot of support from the school. I think we all thought we’d be up and growing by now but now we’re hoping to be open by next fall.
