Davenport Hall Carbon Garden (Ongoing)


This garden engages and trains undergraduates in carbon reduction measures, as it is maintained by undergraduate students in the Brinkworth lab and in the Department of Anthropology. These efforts include composting lab members’ food waste and developing a "Carbon Garden" on campus. The students placed two large no-till, pollinator garden plots on the Southeast side of Davenport Hall in the disused space between the building and the adjacent parking lot. These plots, ringed in decomposed gravel and manually watered from a rain barrel, hold native flowering plants and grasses. Signage explaining the garden's purpose and use educate students on ways in which they can reduce their carbon use in their work and home lives.
