About us

Campus Crops is a student run urban gardening initiative at McGill University's downtown campus. We want to grow food on campus, by students, for students. We have been running garden behind the School of Environment building at 3534 University since 2007. In 2009 we started a terrace garden behind the James Administration building. We're really excited to keep improving these two spaces, and need lots of helping hands for the summer ahead! Get in touch and get gardening!

Be it through different agricultural, political or organizational models, there are so many ways to grow food in an urban setting.

Join Campus Crops for a bike tour of gardens in Montreal to check out just a few of the initiatives taking place in our big urban backyard!

The tour will stop at a rooftop garden in the Plateau, a squat garden in the Mile End, a community garden in NDG, a land-share garden in NDG and at Campus Crops’ very own terrace garden on McGill Campus.

Tour begins at the Campus Crops garden, behind 3534 University at 1 pm. And will end back at the garden around 4 pm.

Il y a tant de manières différentes de faire de l’agriculture dans un milieu urbain. Joignez-vous à Campus Crops pour un tour de vélo de quelques jardins urbains ici au centre-ville de Montréal.

Le tour s’arrêtera à un jardin sur le toit dans le Plateau , un jardin « squat » au Mile-End, un jardin communautaire à NDG et finira au jardin de terrace de Campus Crops sur le campus de McGill.

On se fait rencontre au jardin de Campus Crops, derrière le 3534 Université. Le tour devrait se terminer vers 16 h, à Campus Crops.

Facebook me dit que l'événement aura lieu le 23 juillet, ce que cette publication ne m'indique pas. Une information quand même cruciale! ;)


Facebook tells me that the event will take place on July 23th. The date seems to be missing from the description. ;)
