In November 2014, the Merced College Board of Trustees approved a 10 acre area of land for a Botanical Garden. Listen as Professor Tassey explains how different parts of the garden will serve as a meeting place representing the city of Merced and the county of Merced, theme gardens representing ethnic groups for the last 20 years, and specialty gardens - including a specialty garden for children. The area is intended to be interactive and provide not only an opportunity to showcase plants but also different practices, including irrigation practices. Professor Tassey explains how this project factors in with the current drought because it provides ideas of what plants can live here, and what should live here - dealing directly with water requirements. Listen to how this project will involve the entire campus, including student participation, instructor participation, college staff and the community. Find out more at the Merced College Agriculture facebook page. Professor Tassey can be reached by email at email@example.com and check out www.treepartnersfoundation.org
