            The campus beautification campaign is the inspiration of the University’s acting president Stanley Jackson, according to Ms. Sandra Farber, an Extension Agent and Master Gardener Coordinator for the University of the District of Columbia’s Cooperative Extension Service and principle organizer of the bulb planting.

 

            Bulb planting efforts on Friday will focus on the Cleveland L. Dennard Plaza, the central outdoor area for the UDC campus, while Saturday planting will center on areas adjacent to the corner of Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness Streets.
