The garden is an edible garden (for food only) and will be located at Trafalgar campus between the A wing and the Athletics Centre. Unlike last year, the garden will now have separate plots for groups to take care of and reap the harvest from communally. Plots will be assigned to interested groups with any combination of students, staff and/or faculty members with a minimum of 4 people per group. Priority will be given to students, and some consideration will be given to group availability during summer months. For those who are interested but do not have a group in mind, we will help you connect with others in the same boat. We also endeavour to connect inexperienced with experienced gardeners to share skills and knowledge. Plot sizes have not yet been finalized but may be decided based on the number of interested groups. The tentative timeline for the garden in 2017 is:
April 13: Deadline for applications (This Intake form is your Application form). We will contact you shortly after this date to explain next steps.
End of April/Early May: Orientation meeting(s) for interested Sheridan members which will explain the garden and processes in more detail.
May: Garden open for planting! We will hold a few planting sessions for those who need guidance with planting and maintenance and invite those with experience to share their skills. We will also likely have seedlings to help inexperienced gardeners get started.
