Horticulture students volunteer to help green Hospice Niagara

First year students in NC’s horticulture/landscape/greenhouse programs will spend their Wednesday morning – rain or shine – tending the garden at Hospice Niagara: The Stabler Centre.

“This is an opportunity for our students to not only be involved in practical application of horticulture, but to give of their time to a worthwhile not-for-profit organization in our community,” said professor Dena Gavin.

Approximately 50 students will be involved in the activities which include weeding, cultivating, and planting new materials – donated bv Trail’s End Garden Centre – at the St. Catharines’ site.

Currently celebrating its 50th year as a College of Applied Arts and Technology, NC is a leader in applied education and a key contributor to the economies of Niagara and Ontario. A regional college with global reach, NC offers more than 100 diploma, bachelor degree and advanced level programs.
