The design for BHSEC’s garden creates a sequence of outdoor rooms to be used as a unique platform for learning, for hands on ecological education, and as space for student retreat and gathering. Wood decks create distinct spaces, and a custom shed houses a sink and a micro rain water collection system. Different planter typologies will be employed, including sub irrigated, corrugated, and milk crates.  Assessing the relative advantage of each system will  be one of a number of small scale experiments that the garden will host, allowing Bard students and other schools to model and evaluate a range of urban garden strategies.​​​​​​​
