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!

The beds are ready!

Last Saturday was our (last) garden opening day. After working on some containers, we were also able to make all the beds in our soil garden. Here's the result from many angles. Gardening hours to be announced soon!

All the paths are 45 cm wide (18 in.), and most of the beds are 75 cm wide (32 in.). The oval near the middle is 1m by 1.5m and will host our spiral garden. 

From the South. The central path going from the upper center-right to the oval in the middle was designed to facilitate movement with the water hose, which is plugged into the faucet under the stairs, at the upper extreme-right of the picture.
