Queen’s launches employee community garden pilot

Queen’s University has launched an Employee Community Garden pilot in order to improve employee wellbeing. The garden consists of two plots of land that 30 employees routinely meet to maintain. The project aims to promote sustainable gardening, and relieve stress among employees by helping them to connect with nature. Employees can take what they need from the garden, and any extra produce will be donated to local community organizations. “Staff and faculty were eager to get involved in a communal activity which could have a positive impact on the wellbeing of those on campus, as well as increasing social connectedness,” said Queen’s Wellness and Engagement Coordinator Linda Henderson.
