On Thursday, Oct. 11, Birgitte Ryslinge, dean of instruction at the Rock Creek Campus, symbolically hopped onto one of the two stationary bicycles and started to pedal, generating electricity as evidence by a large tube of red and green lights that illuminated with pedaling. The action served to officially kick-off the Rock Creek Campus’ new-look Learning garden by Building 9. Dozens of students and staff attended to get a look at the new raised beds for staff and students to cultivate plants and vegetables; view the newly installed artwork and signage; stroll the pumpkin patch; check out the the earthen oven; and learn about the garden’s partnerships with the community and other PCC programs.
