The Mohawk College Community Garden provides a place for individuals, departments and student groups to grow common fruits and vegetables for personal consumption at the Fennell Campus. Funded by the Sustainability Initiatives Fund, the Community Garden has grown from 8 plots to 49 plots since it opened in 2013.
We are looking for students to help us with the maintenance of the Community Garden for the 2019 season. We will be hosting volunteer sessions every Wednesday at common hour, where you will learn best practices in weeding, watering, plant care, and general maintenance of the garden.
Help build the growing culture of sustainability at Mohawk College!
