Students at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria have a new learning and leisure space.
Staff, faculty, and volunteers helped plant more then 50 varieties of shrubs, flowers, and succulents in a new botanical garden. It's located just behind the college's new science building.
Instructors say the 9,600 square-foot garden is an example of sustainability, with drip irrigation installed throughout to conserve water, along with drought-resistant plants. They say recycled materials were also used when possible, including a walkway made of crushed granite.
