We’re very grateful to Amanda Kelly ’12 for her hard work and determination in fixing up the Morgan Greenhouse! In spite of several hurdles, Amanda was able to come to campus on a beautiful day today and ceremonially install the last few panes of glass needed for the greenhouse.
Amanda proposed a sustainable redesign of the formerly-neglected greenhouse for her environmental studies senior thesis project, examining possibilities including rainwater collection and potential practical uses for the structure. Since graduating, she has worked to keep the project moving by raising funds, working with local glass-installers, and even spending her own time painting the frame. There is still some work to do before the greenhouse will be fully functional, but today marks a visible, exciting sign of progress in the project. Thank you to Amanda, Director of Facilities Brian Brown, Wells’ office of advancement, and everyone else involved!
