The George Washington University

Urban University Grounds
Honor Award

The George Washington University Grounds Team is single-mindedly dedicated to enriching and nourishing the lives of students, faculty, and staff by maintaining an urban landscape that is beautiful, chemical-free and sustainable. Through the employment of creative landscape designs to optimize their limited space, seasonal plantings to add vibrant colors, and semi-annual giveaways of “edible” landscapes, the team has transformed the urban campus into a Washington gem that is treasured by residents and guests alike.
