Sustainability Program Installs Accessible Garden

Hofstra University’s Sustainability Studies program recently installed a garden that sits 10 inches off the ground and a higher raised planter box that is accessible to students in wheelchairs. This project, a continuation of Earth Day activities, involved the efforts of students, faculty and the University’s carpenters and groundskeepers. Although a garden existed previously next to Stuyvesant Hall on the North Campus, Annetta Centrella-Vitale, Director of Sustainability Studies, said there was a call for modifications to make the area universally accessible.
