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!

Seasonal availability of fruits and vegetables in Quebec
Here's a nice table we adapted from the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries of Quebec (MAPAQ).
Note that the seasonal availability may change depending on the growing season, the region, the specific market, the producers, etc.
Also, corn, oats, rye, buckwheat, barley, spelt, kamut and soy DO grow in Quebec, contrarily to what some people think. SOBAYA noodles are a good example of a product made of locally-grown grains (made in Quebec from grains grown in Quebec).
