Feature Story: A bountiful harvest: RPIRG Green Patch Garden puts nutritious food on the table for all
Tayef Ahmed cares - a lot - about the health and well-being of his fellow students at the University of Regina, with food security at the top of his list. As garden coordinator for the Regina Public Interest Research Group (RPIRG), he manages the Green Patch - a 5,400 square-foot vegetable garden adjacent to the Dr. Lloyd Barber Academic Green at the heart of the U of R campus.
RPIRG is a student-funded resource centre at the University of Regina whose members and partners are committed to social and environmental justice. With financial support from the U of R and RPIRG, the Green Patch supplies fresh produce free to those in need.
