Christine Chu is a Design Assistant at King Garden Designs. Her love of outdoor spaces and plants took root while attending college in Northampton, MA. She finished her undergraduate career with an Environmental Science and Policy degree in the spring of 2018 and is a proud Smithie.
Christine was given opportunities to be involved in research as part of the Environmental Science and Policy Department. Her most notable research project analyzed the sustainability of landscape practices on campus. Along with her teammates, she conducted a series of interviews with important stakeholders of the college to gather information and identify perceived institutional impediments to sustainable change. The project was awarded the Florence Augusta Merriam Bailey Prize for innovative and collaborative approaches to solving environmental and sustainability problems.
Throughout the course of her senior year, Christine worked at her college’s Botanic Garden as an assistant to the greenhouse maintenance staff. She has planted, weeded, watered, mulched, and has even participated in one of the largest American Chestnut restoration projects in the country. She feels that spending time working in the garden has given her valuable experiences and perspectives that she can apply to her career and interests. She loves working with people and plants and wants to dedicate her life to better understand the relationship between humans and the environment.
Christine’s diverse background in environmental science and art has shaped her body of work. In her free time, she likes to paint landscapes and dabble in nature photography during her travels to new places. She first became fascinated with landscape design after taking a landscape studio course, as it allowed her to use her drawing skills and creativity to help others appreciate plants and the outdoors. Her long-term goals are to create and sustain healthy relationships between the environment and the community. She is constantly inspired by her surroundings and hopes to increase her knowledge of gardening and to further develop her design skills at King Garden Designs. In the future, she sees herself pursuing a master’s degree in Landscape Architecture.
