Cooper Union Garden Project

Purpose:

To create a healthy environment at Cooper Union for healthy plants to grow.

To create a home for 2 healthy honeybee hives.

To reconnect to the rhythms of the growing seasons.

To UNIFY cooper union creatives in a project.

To utilize the rooftops and spaces of Cooper Union to grow food.

To practice sustainable gardening methods.

To liberate from our dependence on unsustainable practices.

The intention of the Cooper Union Garden Project is to create a space where the people of Cooper Union can connect, organize, learn, share knowledge, ideas & wisdom, & discuss topics such as urban gardening, permaculture, bee keeping, sustainability, & the Unity of the Cooper Union Community.

The project's emphasis is to nurture the Unity of the community by bringing together the 3 schools of Cooper Union: Fine Arts, Architecture, & Engineering in an ongoing ecological gardening project.
