A Facet of Ecological Design: Greenwich Forest Garden
Meet at the granite sign located between Greenwich Donut 1 and the Greenwich cul-de-sac
10:00–11:15 a.m.
Come smell, touch, and taste your way through a carbon-sequestering landscape that represents one facet of Hampshire's Ecological Design and Inquiry Initiative (EDII). We'll examine dozens of perennial species that make up ecological human settlements and learn about the use of biochar, a strategy that "locks" atmospheric carbon in the soil for hundreds of years while also yielding fertility benefits. In addition to learning about the history of this 10-year-old project, you'll gain insight into the longtime role that ecological design plays in the educational pathways of class after class of Hampshire students. We'll also touch on the EDII Forest Garden Summer Internship program, which provides students hands-on stewardship experience as they maintain this community resource. Ned Phillips-Jones 05F will lead the tour, whose Division III project was to establish the garden.
Please note: accessibility is limited due to uneven terrain.
