See a rooftop garden

The College of St. Scholastica’s new Science Center addition has no ordinary roof. It’s topped with a green roof and greenhouse that produced plenty of salad fixings over the summer.

Wanna see it?

In conjunction with Food Day, a nationwide day dedicated to raising awareness about sustainable and healthy food, the college is hosting a Green Rooftop Garden Open House from 3-5 p.m. Tuesday. Tour the green rooftop and learn about a pilot project to grow food for the campus. The project is supported in part by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Foundation and the fund for the Environment of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.

Parking (not on the roof) is free for the event. Enter the Science Building addition off of the Somers Hall parking lot. Then take the elevators to the fourth floor.
