March 20th, 2017

Anastassia Swenticky, a Georgian Court University senior, was featured in the Asbury Park Press. Her project, Evaluation of use of deep-rooted ornamental grasses as a mechanism to mitigate soil compaction, was funded by New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium’s 2016 Undergraduate Minigrant award.

Along with her faculty mentor Dr. Louise Wootton, Swenticky’s aim was to determine if the use of deep-rooted plants can be used as an alternative to heavy machinery in decreasing soil compaction. Read more about her work here.
