My collaborator and I plan to intervene in this space in some way this week. It’s currently a large ashtray/garbage can with a very attractive bench attached. Our survey shows that people spend time there waiting for class to start and perhaps reading. Survey also says that nothing has been reported to grow in this space for quite some time. Some feel it would make a good garden. One soul has attempted this task planting what looks to be a small avocado tree.
