Green Resource Center

Working together with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Drexel has transformed vacant land in Mantua into a Green Resource Center. The center offers opportunities for gardening and nutrition education among Mantua residents, increases the availability of locally grown produce, functions as a venue for programming, and enhances job-training and employment opportunities for area residents, especially youth. Drexel provided expertise in a number of fields that ensured the center’s technological sophistication and ecological sustainability, particularly in the engineering required to assess the need for soil remediation and the development of plans for water use and renewable energy design and management.
