Landscape Architecture Students–SF Garden Show Award Winners

Living Column of plants and Recycled C-Stud Metal wall

Affiliate Chapter West Valley College Landscape Architecture Club was awarded a Gold Medal Garden Creator Award for the second consecutive year at the 2012 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show. The club’s landscape design entry, entitled “PLANit Green,” was created by a team (Jeanne Eige, Julia Bell, Martin Fregoso, Hip Delgado, Thea French, and Jesus Mora) led by Club President, Leslie Peluso, Student Affiliate ASLA. David Brenner, owner of Habitat Horticulture (creator of the Living Wall exhibit at San Francisco’s California Academy of Sciences), collaborated with the team, and created four living columns for their design. Sustainable reuse concepts, such as urbanite paving and a recycled metal c-stud wall were highlights of the project. The California native plants used in the exhibit were generously gifted to the club by Yamagami’s Nursery and Village Nurseries, and were in turn, donated to West Valley College.

Chapter members are currently volunteering their time to help with an educational and sustainable landscape design on campus.  Click here for more information about the Landscape Architecture program at West Valley College or visit the Club’s website.
