Soil Restoration Project at Pace’s NYC Garden
In early April, the Pace Sustainability Committee (PSI), a student-run environmental organization, coordinated a soil restoration project in Pace University’s New York City on-campus community garden. The soil will be used in the garden, located on the corner of Spruce Street and Gold Street, for this year’s harvest.
Pace’s Director of Multicultural Affairs, Dr. Denise Santiago facilitated a delivery of compost from the New York Restoration Project and PSI helped coordinate volunteers for the project.
