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.

The Community Garden is Back!
The Mohawk Community Garden provides individuals, departments and student groups with a small allotment (4’ x 8’ raised bed) in a designated area, on campus, to grow common fruits and vegetables for personal consumption. This project encourages local food production while providing teaching and learning opportunities for Mohawk students, staff and community members.
The Community Garden operates annually from May through November all the while providing community and garden members with an abundance of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.
Want more information? Please contact Devon Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions concerning the garden.
