If Trees Could Talk: McGill's Edible Campus
Learn about the exciting campus gardens that provide fresh produce for Santropol Roulant every summer. Your guide Pierre-Vincent, the Director of the Programme d'agriculture urbaine - Urban Agriculture Program, will show you how the A-frames, hoophouses and self-watering containers work to make urban gardening sustainable on McGill's Edible Campus.
These monthly tree talks are inspired by Bronwyn Chester's Island of Trees. A limited edition print of an article Bronwyn Chester wrote about the Jack Pine will be available for a minimum $15 contribution. At the door.
Everyone welcome. Free, no reservations necessary.
Meet: on the front steps of the Museum, rain or shine.
Organized by: Annie-Lou Chester-Bronwyn's sister- and McGill Science Outreach.
