SLUG Studio to Transform Tucson Schools
CAPLA's Sustainable Laboratory Urban Garden (SLUG) studio had a community outreach event with their collaborators, City High School and Paolo Freire Freedom School, this past Saturday. The studio's design/build project, supported by a UA Green Fund Grant of $35,000, will transform the schools' currently under-utilized alley into a space for urban agriculture, outdoor teaching, informal play and student engagement. SLUG is led by faculty members Linda Samuels and Chris Trumble, and includes 5th year B.Arch students and an MLA student. You can follow their project's progress on the Sustainable City Project Facebook page and website.
