Enclosed Ecosystem Exhibit at the Campus Center March-June

The Enclosed Ecosystem Exhibit was put up in the Campus  Center so that everyone could enjoy watching some of the Community Garden's seedlings grow in a community space at Smith, without even having to go the garden on Lyman Rd to see them. The seedlings of arugula, basil, kale, marigolds, mustard greens and spinach were in recycled bottles, self-contained, self-watering, self-sustaining ecosystems. Ours lasted over 2 and a half months up in the Campus Center without needing any water. They enjoyed the sunlight from the Campus Center's big glass windows so much that they eventually grew too big for our bottles and we had to take the display down. Hopefully, we will put the exhibit back up in the near future. Enjoy some pictures from the exhibit, below.
