Smith Meyer Goes Wayfairing

Susanne Smith MeyerNHTI adjunct professor of Landscape Design Susanne Smith Meyer was recently interviewed by about "Gardening and Landscaping for Students: Creating outdoor classrooms, gardens, and natural play spaces." 

"When children are exposed to gardening they learn where food comes from, the importance of fresh food, and take pride in something they have grown themselves," says Smith Meyer. "For many children, this may be their first and only experience connecting to the earth."

Students Have Stake in Garden

Students from the Architectural Engineering and Environmental Action Clubs joined forces last week to help prepare the Sycamore Community Garden for the spring planting season.

The previous week, another group of students spread compost over the garden to help enrich the soil.  Now the garden needed to be marked off into over 130 plots for the upcoming season.

Surveying the Sycamore Garden

The AET students used their surveying skills to lay out the grid lines for the new garden, and the EAC students fanned out with stakes and hammers to mark the boundaries of the individual plots.  As Environmental Science Prof. Tracey Lesser put it, "The architecture club provided the brains; the environmental club provided the brawn!"
