Workshops to pass on skills for urban farming

A series of workshops starting January in support of the Campus Community Garden Project will encourage further development of urban farming in Windsor-Essex, says the UWindsor alumnus who won a $3,558 grant to make it happen.

Robert Woodrich (BA 2011) received the monies from the Cooperators Foundation’s Impact Fund, created to engage youth in sustainability solutions that will have a positive impact on Canadian communities.

“Combining environmental and social issues, I immediately thought of the community garden,” he says.
