Provisioning Garden is the Newest Living Laboratory on the Cook Campus

Dec 1, 2019

Students returning to the George H. Cook Campus this fall were greeted with a new garden installed at the Cook Office Building (COB) across from the popular Skelly Field on Dudley Road.
The Provisioning Garden showcases plants that contribute provisioning services to assist humans and wildlife in some way - food, fuel, fiber, medicine, and habitat. The provisioning theme, a term explained in the UNs Ecosystems and Human Well-being: A Framework for Assessment (2003), reflects the missions of the two departments of Human Ecology and Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics, occupants of COB and both of which study the human dimensions of environmental problems and challenges.
