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
