Be the Change: build Sheridan’s community garden

Spring is quickly approaching and with that comes a great opportunity for you to engage with the Sheridan community at the Davis campus. Every spring, the Sheridan Business Council (SBC) gears up to grow a vegetable garden right on the campus grounds. The initiative aims to build connections among students, faculty and staff, while promoting healthy eating habits.

“We’ve been doing this project for a couple of years now, and it’s been a big hit with the students. This is a great opportunity for them to engage with fellow students while at the same time serving on a community project,” said John MacRae, Professor and Student Life Advisor at Sheridan.

The garden, which includes vegetables like tomatoes and peppers, will be cultivated from May until September. After that, to celebrate the harvest and foster community spirit, SBC students will prepare a fresh pasta and vegetables meal with produce collected from the garden. The meal will be served on campus at no cost as long as supplies last.

Come celebrate spring with SBC! Sign up to volunteer today by emailing Marilena DelMonte at delmontm@sheridancollege.ca
