MIT Gardeners

We mentioned the MIT Garden at today's meeting. See Gardeners on the Roof for a description of the project:
The pilot program in urban sustainable agriculture is the result of a months-long effort spearheaded by MIT Police Sgt. Cheryl Vossmer and Libraries Administrative Assistant and Public Service Support Associate Ryan Gray. Working with administrators and staff across the Institute, the two were able to secure seven little-used parking spaces and a strip of grass at West Garage to house the garden, which will comprise several dozen plots. The remainder of the spots on the garage's roof will still be open for parking this summer.
And there's a video too!

The MIT gardeners used Earth Boxes--it might be interesting to incorporate something like this into our garden plan for the Pratt Campus.
