The Winona State University campus will soon feature a new interactive garden in front of the Integrated Wellness Complex.
The installation of the native prairie garden marks a continuation of the high environmental standards set by the LEED Gold certification of the complex. The garden will highlight native prairie species that require minimum maintenance after the establishment of the vegetation.
The garden will be used as a venue for classes, presentations and performances.
Biology Professor Bruno Borsari guided WSU student Kaitlyn O'Connor in this project.
Borsari says the garden will demonstrate to visitors and the entire community how to reconstruct landscapes with sustainability in mind, besides making this space a distinctive, educational feature of the WSU campus.
Winona Nursery was hired to install the garden.......
