The Community Garden is under the prevue of the Environmental Commissioners. It is run by the Community Garden Manager and the Community Garden Outreach Coordinator with the help of numerous volunteers.
The King’s Community Garden is currently undergoing relocation, revitalization, and expansion efforts. Currently located in the backyard of the International House at King’s University College the garden is volunteer run and operated. The Garden is in the process of being moved to a more central, visible, and accessible location on campus.
Through the garden we strive to cultivate more green space, allow King’s students and community members to pursue their love of gardening, create organic produce, and encourage active student participation in the community.
The goals for the garden are to provide information and access to alternative food source methods, foster a sense of community between students and other members of the North London area, and teach students and others how to create and maintain gardens of their own.
An offshoot of the Community Garden is the Youth & Community Outreach Initiative.
- The YCOI aims to get local elementary, middle, and high school students involved with the garden in a meaningful and positive way.
- The goals are to show younger students where their food comes from, raise awareness about organic farming, foster a love of nature and horticulture, help high school students get their 40 hours of community service, and show the London North Centre Community what King’s has to offer.
