"AgraTurf is pleased and excited with the opportunity to partner with Fanshawe College," said Joe Fewer, President and CEO. "We believe that community partnering and support is important in the education and development of our local communities."

"We are thrilled with AgraTurf's generosity, which will allow for proper grounds maintenance over the years to come. The Campus could not enjoy the level of success it does without ongoing partnerships with local business and industry. This is another example of the effectiveness of those relationships," said Donna Gates, Campus Chair. "We rely on these partnerships in many different ways, from financial and equipment support, to student placements and jobs for our graduates. We all benefit and, more importantly, our community benefits when we work together."
