Love of gardening can bring campus closer to community

The University’s campus community garden project is a way to close a gap between the campus community and the surrounding neighbourhoods, says its founder.

Rita Haase, a sessional instructor in women’s studies, helped to get the garden—located on California Avenue behind the education building— running in the spring of 2010. She said its 200 volunteers encompass UWindsor students and employees as well as about 30 members of the broader community.

“If we share the food and love of gardening, it can bring people together,” she says.
