TWU Community Garden

Melissa Oakes, Community Garden Manager

Since 2009 the Environmental Studies Program and the A Rocha TWU student conservation organization have operated a community vegetable garden and fruit orchard on a portion of the 57-acre property on Glover Road. The garden provides opportunity for members of the TWU community, as well as the broader neighbourhood, to learn to grow a portion of their own food using sustainable agriculture techniques, to connect with each other and with God's creation, and to provide food to local food banks and homeless shelters. This effort has been supported by various grants and by composting efforts from the main campus. The community garden also provides academic and research space for Environmental Studies students and professors. For further information on joining the garden or participating in composting on campus please contact:
