[Full to Capacity] Chicago Campus Service Opportunity 2: Wabash Building Roof Garden Beautification
Wabash Building WB 5th Floor Garden Area (walk through The Barry Crown Fitness Center)
While rooftop gardens at Roosevelt’s Wabash Building enhance the sustainability of our urban environment, these spaces need maintenance and loving care. Help us tend to our 5th-floor gardens. This service project will include clean-up and harvest work in the fresh air, followed by an interactive discussion of RU’s various sustainability initiatives and a delicious snack made from the garden’s harvested herbs. Meet outside the 5th floor Wabash Fitness Center. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

Currently, the International Affairs Budget makes up only a mere 1 percent of the U.S. federal budget, but impacts all aspects of life in America.
