After some thoughtful discussions, top-notch meetings, and tough decisions, the Fellows have decided on our summer project. We’ll be developing design concepts for a new 1-acre garden at the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services’ (DHSS) Holloway Campus in New Castle, DE.
A joint venture between DHSS, the Delaware Department of Agriculture, the New Castle County Cooperative Extension, the University of Delaware’s Center for Disability Services, and the Delaware Center for Horticulture, the new garden will incorporate principles of universal accessibility and sustainable agriculture. It is envisioned as a venue for horticultural therapy, art therapy, and community gardening, as well as a place for respite and reflection.
Sounds like a great project, right? We think so too! We’re excited to get started, and to bring the incoming class of first year students on board.
