In 2022, the Loyola S.E.E.D. Garden Beds were created through funding from the Loyola Mission Integration Grant with additional funding provided by Student Goverment Association Sustainability Committee. The gardens are used for many purposes including addressing food insecurity by providing fresh produce for Iggy's Cupboard, giving students the opportunity to understand local food systems, integrating hands-on learning experiences into Biology and Environment Program curriculum, benefit local ecosystems by planting native plants and providing a spot for relaxation and contemplation.

Congratulations to Megan Stempkovksi for being recognized for her dedication and hard work. Megan is a fourth year neuroscience major and works in both the Department of Psychological Sciences and Environment Program.
