A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

Situated on the Loyola Campus, the mind.heart.mouth. collective Garden aims to promote food security on campus by providing free local organic food to any member of the Concordia community who wishes to volunteer in the garden and to the Hive Coop who provide free lunches for all. By reframing our approach to front lawns aesthetics with an innovative concept which consists of a fresh vegetable and fruit garden, we are filling gaps in the availability and consumption of nutritious food to meet dietary needs without having to transport food over far distances.
