No visit to campus would be complete without a visit to the Morgan Arboretum – Canada’s largest arboretum - and to the Macdonald Campus Farm. As the last working farm on the Island of Montreal, the farm serves as a living laboratory where scientific agricultural practices have been tested and taught for more than 100 years. It is home to an award-winning dairy herd and also produces all of the eggs and most of the seasonal fruits and vegetables used in McGill’s Residence Dining Halls.
