"Digging in" in Camden

Places and Spaces has written before about great efforts to help Camden as well as some of the complications of trying to improve the city. Now Rutgers has some new efforts geared towards greening North Camden that are getting some attention:
Dean J. Cardasis, a professor at Rutgers’ School of Environmental and Biological Sciences in New Brunswick, is launching a graduate program in landscape architecture this fall. With two of his students, seniors Charles Oropollo of Audubon and James Brosius of New Brunswick, he will work with residents and community leaders to develop a blueprint using ornamental plantings, gardens, and stone pathways to unite the now-vacant Camden lots in a common theme.

And we expect more in the coming months. Stay tuned...
