Sheridan’s Community Garden is a grassroots initiative that began during the winter of 2016. Initially built in May 2016, the garden is located at Trafalgar Campus in Oakville, Ontario, between A-Wing and the Athletics Centre. A more permanent garden is being constructed in May 2017.
Aimed at providing an applied outdoor learning experience, the Community Garden provides participants with the opportunity to learn how to grow and harvest local, organic, in-season food for personal consumption. The Community Garden is designed to help foster collaboration and community involvement by providing participants the opportunity to teach, learn and mentor each other in groups.
Students, staff, and community members, of experience levels from first time planters to dedicated gardeners, are all welcome to participate in the Community Garden activity.
