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!

Seedling sales in Montréal (2014)!

Aww yissssss! Supers pampers seedlings! Get yours now (or later) somewhere near your house (or not)! We've gathered info on some of the seedling sales happening in Montréal (announced so far) just for you! Read below:

Order your seedlings online at Coop La Maison Verte
Coop La Maison Verte is located in NDG. They sell seedlings from the Ferme du Zéphyr, located in Senneville. You have until May 3 to order your seedlings there. See their online store and list of deadline dates.

The mega monsta' Vert-ta-ville seedling sale at Concordia Greenhouse
On May 15th and 16th, go to the Concordia Greenhouse to get seedlings for over 100 varieties of heirloom veggies, herbs and flowers at 3$ a piece. They also offer a complete list of the varities on their website (yet to be posted, so don't get too excited just now).

Be ready, though, because the Concordia Greenhouse seedling sale is probably one of the most prized of such sales in the neighborhood, and supplies tend to run out quickly! See their blog for more details (and subscribe to their newsletter while you're at it).

Santropol Roulant's seedling sale (or so we hope)
Santropol usually has quite a few extra seedlings left after they set up their Edible Campus gardens. Visit their website often (or subscribe to their newsletter)!

The seedling sale has been announced!
May 17th: Maison de l’amitié (120 ave Duluth est)
May 24th & 31st: Santropol Roulant (111 Roy E.)

Plantcatching is a website that allows you to know where you can get free/cheap seeds, plants and even small lots for gardening from people in your area. It displays requests for these things as well, and interesting events related to gardening, urban agriculture, permaculture, etc.

That's pretty much all we've found so far. Don't hesitate to let us know about other seedling sales in Montréal by emailing us at campuscrops@gmail.com
