We have made lots of progress in the UC Davis Animal Science GATEway Garden. Over the past few months pathways were shaped and paved with decomposed granite; raised planting beds, irrigation and fencing were installed; a bench was created using recycled agricultural materials (see photo above); stone pathways and fence posts were constructed; and defunct concrete irrigation standpipes were given a second life as vessels for container plantings.
In a true collaborative effort, UC Davis Animal Science Farm Crew members, UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden team members including staff from Grounds and Landscape Services and Putah Creek and Riparian Reserve, along with student assistants and volunteers have all been hard at work creating a unique space that will serve to showcase UC Davis Animal Science research and societal contributions, in addition to functioning as an outdoor classroom and event space.
