Student Interns in Environmental Sustainability Install Drip Irrigation System at RU’s Community Garden

As reported here by SUST major Mary Beth Radeck on the Schaumburg’s Sustainable Future blog, students and staff at RU’s Schaumburg Campus installed a drip irrigation system in late June for the RU Community Garden, now in its third growing season. Students working as paid environmental sustainability interns with the university Physical Resources and Operations department, under the supervision of Assistant VP Paul Matthews, planned this system over the last two years and installed it with the help of Pedro Perez, chief engineer at the Schaumburg Campus.

Kudos to sustainability interns Mary Beth Radeck, Mary Rasic, and Kevin Matthews for their great work on this cool project!
