Pollinator garden takes root at UC Clermont
New plants add beauty and function to Batavia campus
The University of Cincinnati Clermont College Sustainability Committee has coordinated the planning and installation of a pollinator garden on the college’s Batavia campus, near the west parking lot.
“The pollinator landscape installation at the UC Clermont College campus is designed to be a multi-functional form of green infrastructure, as it is intended to support biodiversity, provide pollinator habitat, slow stormwater runoff and enhance the aesthetic beauty of the Clermont campus,” said Daniel Hart, UC sustainability coordinator.
UC’s Landscape Architect John Martini and his co-op students worked with the UC Clermont Sustainability Committee on the garden design. The actual installation was done in early April by members of the Sustainability Committee, UC Clermont Associate Director of Operations and Maintenance Kevin Peck, student volunteers from Clermont College and the Uptown Campus, and Facilities Management support staff.
“This project provided experiential education and service learning opportunities for students while also enhancing the physical environment and supporting UC’s mission related to real world learning,” Hart said.
