News

Published: 10Oct2019

Help us make McGill a more sustainable place to work and study!

As the Sustainability Projects Fund turns 10 years old, we’d like to recall some of the SPF’s most popular projects, SP0186: Garden Inside 365, SP0210: Hydroponic McGill, and SP0155: McGill Spin Bike Gardens, by giving McGill staff, students and faculty groups the chance to win one for their space!

The indoor hydroponic garden towers at the heart of the Gardens Inside 365 and Hydroponic McGill projects engage McGill community members by promoting year-round, sustainable produce cultivation, improving wellbeing by providing light and vegetation, as well as serving as a conversation hub to discuss topics such as food production, accessibility, and health.

The McGill Spin Bike Gardens are accessible, silent spin bikes flanked by plant walls located throughout the McGill campus, designed to provide enjoyable mental and physical health breaks for students, staff, and faculty.

Please complete the form at mcgill.ca/sustainability/spf10 by Dec. 5 to express your interest in installing an indoor hydroponic garden tower or a Spin Bike Garden in your space on campus. The Office of Sustainability will follow up in January to distribute the towers and Spin Bike Gardens, and to arrange installation. The total number of towers and Spin Bike Gardens installed will be determined based on the amount of interest expressed by the McGill community.

Note: Please read the form carefully, as groups who apply for Spin Bike Gardens or indoor hydroponic garden towers must have the proper permissions and resources to maintain the spaces after installation.


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.
