Demonstration Gardens

Originally created in 2007 with funding from Energy Solutions, the gardens were rehabilitated in 2011 by the Environmental Studies Capstone Class. These outdoor learning spaces showcase plants native to the area, xeriscape principles, wildlife habitat, and/or plants mentioned in the works of Shakespeare.   Please use the links to the left to learn more about our beautiful campus gardens or head outside to explore them.  Each garden features explanatory signs and plant species labels.  Click here for a map of garden locations.
