Rosemarie Rochetta Wessies Rooftop Garden


Project Vision

Located on the Quinlan Life Science Building is the Rosemarie Rochetta Wessies Rooftop Garden which houses the first garden as part of Urban Agriculture Demonstration Gardens project. This garden is a demonstration and exploration of three-season (spring, summer, fall) growing seasons a variety of seasonal herbs, produce and flowers. The rooftop site allows students to learn about rooftop food production in conditions that differ from on-the-ground growing conditions and, of particular importance, the ability to grow food in urban conditions when ground-level space is not possible.
