uelBrown University’s Center for Environmental Studies not only hosts a community garden for staff, students, and neighbors, but it also supports scholarship on gardening. Two Environmental Studies grad students are studying the impact of local food gardening. They are defending their masters theses next week, and the public is invited to attend.

Monday, April 13th at noon
Marie-Laure Couët on “Strengthening Providence with Community Gardens”

Tuesday, April 14 at 10am
Nora Buckman on “The Grass isn’t Greener: Exploring the Motivations and Barriers to Home Gardening in Rhode Island”

Both presentations take place at the Urban Environmental Lab, 135 Angell Street.  Visit the garden if you stop by.
