Greater Allegheny to Create Garden Experience.
Penn State News | April 29, 2015
A group from Penn State Greater Allegheny is creating a garden that will serve as a “gateway” to the campus. Read more.
Dr. Alandra Kahl is a professor at Penn State Greater Allegheny. She and fellow PSUGA Professor, April, have teamed up to turn a vacant piece of land at the entrance to campus into a more welcoming community and outdoor learning space. Their project – EN-GAGE – Greater Allegheny Garden Experience– hopes to create a relaxing space that blends campus life into the community of McKeesport. The space will also serve as an outdoor lecture area and a place to facilitate group discussions.
They are excited to give their students the opportunity to be involved in their community through this project.
Currently, Alandra is collecting feedback and input from students, community members and anyone interested in her project. Fill out her survey to contribute ideas, suggestions or to contact Alandra to find out how you can get involved.
“My hope is to foster collaboration between the campus and the community.”— Alandra Kahl, ReClaim McKeesport Ambassador
