Community Involvement

Reaching out and inviting the community in

Our campus community is strengthened by the community around us. We recognize the importance of community and often award, recognize and get involved with our neighbours from both the local community and communities around the world.

Garden Box

The Garden Box is an online place to find credible, science-based garden knowledge in a format that is accessible to anyone, at any time. Whether you're looking for the specific growing requirements of tomatoes or trying to think of an exercise for community garden volunteers, we trust that this site will provide some solutions for you.

Learning that Lasts

Our community is made up of people who roll up our sleeves and work to make our community better. We use our professional and personal skills to make a difference, each and every day. Find out how our talented people are creating a community of Learning that Lasts.
