Campus Garden / Green House
Idea submitted by:- Austin Henderson - Network Engineering
Mohawk college needs to invest in a green house. The ability to produce fresh, non-preservative, fruit and vegetables would really help with sustainability at Mohawk. This opens up different opportunities, including opening up the green house to students with related courses, having the produce harvested and used towards having fresher food for our students.
Many students deal with extreme stress during the school year. This, along with a poor diet, can lead to high blood pressure. Most vegetables are rich in many nutrients; potassium, dietary fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, etc. Having this fresh produce can lead to a much higher potassium rich diet, which has been studied to help maintain blood pressure.
Having our own produce is a much healthier alternative.
