The community garden at 1032 Lafayette Avenue is a cooperative garden on Canisius’ campus in partnership with Oxford Square Block Club, PS #17, PS #74, the Congolese Refugee Communities and others. This garden is at the center of the college’s sustainability initiative. It is a place where Canisius community members, students and neighbors can meet, play, work on their raised beds, grow food, eat food and get to know one another. We have a lot to learn from each other!
