We are Expanding!
Funded by the Sustainability Initiatives Fund, the Community Garden is undergoing a large expansion to accommodate campus demand and new community partnerships. The expansion will extend to the south side of the F-wing, along Governors Boulevard. This expansion project will help accommodate campus demand and new community partnerships.
The expansion includes 47 raised plots (3 accessible plots), a rooftop rainwater harvesting system, a large gathering/classroom area, 5 fruit trees, upgraded storage, equipment and tools.
The new community garden will also feature an at grade farm bed for use by the Mohawk Students’ Association Food Service Division.
The Mohawk Community Garden is a project of the Mohawk College Environmental Management Plan 2.0, view the plan here

EMP 2.0: Raising the Bar on Sustainability at Mohawk!
Mohawk College is committed to conducting business in ways which positively impact people, the environment and the economy. As momentum builds at the individual, community, national and international levels, Mohawk will continue to be a leader in the sustainability movement.
The Environmental Management Plan update (EMP 2.0) reaffirms Mohawk’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment, and ensures social and financial resiliency while providing opportunities to engage staff, students and the community in an ever-growing culture of sustainability. EMP 2.0 will continue to act as the leading policy document and blueprint that will play a vital role in Mohawk's future success, as the sustainability movement progresses from a grassroots movement to a global reality.
At Mohawk College, Environmental Sustainability is one component of our overall sustainability efforts
Along with social and financial sustainability, our environmental sustainability is a cornerstone of our Strategic Plan. We feel it is our responsibility to work alongside our community, businesses, other Colleges and Universities, and individuals to promote environmental awareness and sustainability. For decades, we have been reducing our impact on the planet and as we move forward, we are creating policies that ensure a prosperous future for generations to come.
