Campus Crops is a student run urban gardening initiative at McGill University's downtown campus. We grow food on campus, by students, for students.
Exerpt from the project application: Our main activities revolve around gardening and improving our gardening spaces (behind the MSE building and on the terrace behind the James Administration building), though we also organize other events such as workshops, alone or in collaboration with other groups on campus or from the community. Our group has multiple objectives, namely helping people learn how to grow their own food and tend their own urban garden through a hands-on approach, raise awareness around issues like food security, and provide Midnight Kitchen, another student group on campus, with fresh produce for their meals. In doing so, we hope to improve the autonomy of students regarding food, foster discussion and action concerning food-related issues around the world, and provide students with local food of quality, through Midnight Kitchen. All students can join Campus Crops (the terrace is wheelchair accessible) and we aim at creating a safer space for our work and discussions.
