Overview

No votes yet

In between Villa classroom 155 and Provincial House is an over gown area. The spot has great potential to become a nice relaxing place for students to enjoy the outside. At the current state the garden has many over grown plants, areas when it rains there are large pools of water that form and giant weeds in the middle of the walk ways (some are taller than 6ft). More information on what the Honor College plans to do with the area will come shortly.

For all of those who are wondering what will become/ is becoming of this "overgrown" garden, a current team of students enrolled in the honors Urban Ecology class is working to replant and redesign the courtyard. The goal of the team is to renovate the space so it will be a nice place to work and have class. The team is currently planning to plant native Missouri plants that will grow very well in the area between the buildings. As a result, the soil and plants will help to hold rainwater runoff, and prevent erosion of the stream and other watershed areas. Not only will it help to slow runoff, it will also help to clean the water that may have toxins. In the long run this will help UMSL work to make university campuses more green.
