Very exciting update: La Loma Rooftop Garden has been adopted by the Hispanic Engineers and Scientists, an undergraduate student group on campus focused on social justice and outreach, which will be using it for various projects including hydroponics, aquaponics, insect farming, and a living wall. We are currently in the design phase, and looking forward to initiating the projects over this summer!
In honor of Earth Day, we constructed two beds from recycled picket fencing, planting over 100 succulents. The succulents were generously donated by the Patagonia Case Competition put on by the Haas School of Business, and planted by the talented finalists (in collaboration with the HES and graduate student team). Many of the finalists said it was the highlight of their weekend at Cal!
Happy Earth Day (tomorrow!) and thank you again for your support!
