RIT students have partnered with residents in Rochester’s Marketview Heights neighborhood to create several gardens throughout the community. Through the University/Community Partnerships program in the College of Liberal Arts, RIT students educate neighborhood children about proper nutrition, where their food comes from, the benefits of growing their own food, and musical and artistic expression in the garden. In addition, all of the food cultivated in the garden is free to community residents. Here, RIT alumnus Cameron Hebda ’12 takes pride in educating youngsters about healthy eating.
