Forest (Juniper) Residence Hall

With the support of a grant from the Green Fee Fund, the Student Garden Collective and Facilities began work last week installing a small greenhouse near the Forest Residence Halls. Students were involved in each step of the concept, design and material procurement process for the greenhouse led by Joren Bass, architect with Mahlum. The materials used for the structure include salvaged glass from campus and reclaimed materials from a building reuse center. The greenhouse will be used to start plants and grow food as well as other co-curricular and curricular purposes. Facilities Services building staff will complete the structure this week and will then welcome students to paint and begin planting the interior sections.
