Green Space at Dornsife

With a significant amount of open space on the property, the Dornsife Center will offer sustainability-focused programming that engages neighbors and community members.

Environment & Sustainability
Possible programming to include: 

  • Raised planting beds where local residents and Drexel community members will cultivate and harvest fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Workshops on low-maintenance, drought-resistant landscaping using native plants, and on low-tech stormwater management design
  • A research greenhouse housing Drexel faculty research in entomology, botany, and stormwater management, with opportunities for “citizen science” and demonstrations of sustainability research
  • Green infrastructure and landscaping that leverages the site as a touchable demonstration of urban sustainability
