Urban agriculture is an important part of the sustainability landscape at McGill. Gardens offer numerous benefits to our campus as spaces of greening, community-building, and skill sharing. Each garden operates independently, with support from McGill’s Grounds department, providing soil, compost, and gardening tips. To find out more, take a look at our resources for those interested in urban agriculture at McGill:


Roots Coalition

Communication between the gardens is facilitated by the Roots Coalition, a student-run network for collaboration and resource-sharing between gardens on the downtown campus. The coalition aims to highlight the value of gardens on McGill’s landscape, and foster a culture that allows students and gardeners to feel connected to campus spaces.
