In case you did not know Sara the Director of Unity Gardens also teaches community nursing at Saint Mary's College. Recently Saint Mary's was awarded a new designation of an " Engaged Campus " by the Carnegie Foundation.The designation is for campuses that excel in engaging the local or global community through Volunteerism, community based learning, community based research, internships, community partnerships, and faculty publications, consulting, and research. Sara was recognized for her work with Unity Gardens. Saint Marys had several groups out to the work in the gardens, and we are also working on an internship with them. Several others were recognized for their work. Its amazing how many Staff, and students work to better the community.
