Postsecondary institutions launch, expand gardens focused on community and diversity

Postsecondary institutions across Canada have recently launched or expanded campus gardens. George Brown has launched the Greening Through Food and Education initiative, which includes an Indigenous Medicine Garden and a green rooftop to support its curriculum, while U of T has collaborated with professors, youth, and Indigenous leaders to launch an urban Indigenous garden to help educate people about their interdependence with nature. UAlberta has finished construction of the Diwan pavilion, which completes its Botanic Gardens. The pavilion’s design is based on Islamic architecture and complements the symmetries of the Aga Khan Garden. Okanagan is expanding tours of its K’nma?ka Senqâ?ten garden to allow more children and newcomers to develop a deeper understanding of the traditional use of local plants.
