Free House Plant Giveaway for the SPF 10th Anniversary


Help us make McGill a greener place to work and study!

As the Sustainability Projects Fund turns 10 years old, we’d like to recall some of the SPF’s earliest and most popular projects (SP0001: Apartment Gardens and SP0065: Greening Indoor McGill) by giving away free houseplants to McGill students, staff, and faculty.

On October 24, the Office of Sustainability and SPF partners, SSMU, PGSS and MCSS, will be distribute the houseplants at three locations on the downtown campus and one on the Macdonald campus. All you need is a valid McGill ID!

Date: Thursday, Oct. 24
Time: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., while supplies last

Downtown Campus:
- McCall MacBain Arts Building (853 Sherbrooke St W)
- Brown Student Services Building (3600 McTavish St)
- Thomson House (3650 McTavish St)
- Trottier Building – Second floor Mezzanine (3630 University)
- Currie Gymnasium (475 Ave des Pins W)

Macdonald Campus:
- Macdonald Steward Building (21111 Lakeshore Dr, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec H9X 3L9)

Note: Due to limited quantity, we will be operating under a strict one plant per person policy. You will need to present your McGill ID to retrieve your plant. The giveaway will also operate on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

The Sustainability Projects Fund mandate is to build a culture of sustainability on McGill campuses through the development and seed-funding of interdisciplinary projects. The largest fund of its kind in Canada, it creates opportunities for the McGill community to actively engage in sustainability initiatives on campus, empowering individuals to be change agents in their own studying and work environment.
