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.
