Thanks to a seed grant from the Office of the Vice President for Commonwealth Campuses, Penn State Brandywine was able to watch its garden grow from 2,500 square feet to 3,600 square feet. On September 14, members of the Penn State Brandywine community celebrated the expansion of the campus garden with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The campus garden, which opened in 2014, is housed between the Vairo Library and Orchard Hall, where members of the Brandywine community can connect with nature.
