AMPHITHEATER - The Amphitheater stage is home to various performances and events, including concerts, plays, puppet shows, and yoga sessions - many of them free and open to the public! It sits above a rain garden filled with native plants and bushes that are both beautiful and beneficial. To the right of the large maple tree sits the Anne Mallinson Cafe, a former dairy barn turned student-run business project. To the left of the maple, the old barn is reminiscent of Eden Hall's past and serves as a venue for plays, concerts, dinners, dances, and weddings.
Aquaculture Lab - The primary function of this lab is to support student learning and research opportunities in the realm of aquaponics and aquaculture, centering on food production for the Eden Hall community. Another main focus of research is examining the human impacts on the natural population. The aquaponics system has been used to raise tilapia, tomatoes, and herbs, while the aquaculture system has been home to 500 rainbow trout at a time.
Broadhurst Forum - Located in the Esther Barazzone Center, this gathering space features a two-story tall green wall as well as natural plaster walls crafted from clay in the soil on the Eden Hall Campus. The stairs and seating area exemplify Eden Hall's commitment to using repurposed materials. Any guesses how this wood was used prior to becoming a seating area?
Mosaic Garden (and more!) - What lies beneath this beautiful display of native plants is a unique campus gem! This garden is planted above some of the tanks and machinery of our very own onsite wastewater treatment. One of the visible features of the wastewater treatment system is the constructed wetlands, which aid in removing nutrients and reducing byproducts in the wastewater. After the wastewater is moved through this area, the final stages take place in the Field Lab (also home to the Ecology Lab and the Aquaculture Lab).
Solar High Tunnel
Solar High Tunnel - This highly automated year-round grow space looks different every month of the year. The cement walkway houses pipes of propylene glycol, a liquid heated by solar thermal panels adjacent to the tunnel, keeping it warm enough to grow greens even in the winter months. The two layers of plastic that cover the tunnel act as insulators, with each layer transferring us 500 miles south on the USDA growing zones. In warmer weather, temperature sensors activate fans and motors that roll up the walls to increase air flow so the crops don't overheat. The large tank holds fish waste from the Aquaculture Lab that is transferred to the enclosure through pipes below the ground and is used as fertilizer. While in the tunnel, see if you can spot one or more of the 10,000 ladybugs that are released in the high tunnel each year to help with pest control.
