La Cave is a volunteer-run bike collective located at McGill University’s Solin Hall Residence. Established in August 2010 with funding from the Sustainable Projects Fund, La Cave provides residents with free access to tools and expertise for bike maintenance and repair, and promotes cycling as a sustainable, affordable, and fun way to travel in Montreal.
The Edible Campus Garden, a collaborative project of the McGill School of Architecture's Minimum Cost Housing Group, Alternatives, and Santropol Roulant, seeks to involve citizens in the creation of green, edible community spaces by demonstrating how productive planting can be woven into urban spaces without diminishing their utility or functionality.
The objective of the project is to provide locally grown fruits and vegetables from the Macdonald Campus’s Horticultural Center to McGill’s downtown residences and the general student community.
Apartment Gardens gives individuals on the downtown McGill campus an opportunity to have a small home garden, right in their window or on their balcony. The service will provide people with leafy vegetable seedlings in small pots using compost and soil, distributed weekly at the McGill Farmers’ Market.
