Marlin Meadows

The Marlin Meadows Community Garden aims to showcase the interconnection between students and faculty of various disciplines by providing a space where their work can be displayed in unison. The garden is an extension of the native plant gardens around the Greer Center of Environmental Science, and will feature displays from, but not limited to, the departments of the Arts, Business, English, History, and Social Sciences. With help from Norfolk Botanical Gardens and the Elizabeth River project, Marlins Go Green will oversee the development of the department-inclusive garden, which will officially open in Fall of 2020.
