The Campus Community Garden is a UVic Students' Society (UVSS) constituency group that manages the urban agriculture space on campus, with practical support from UVic Facilities Management and the UVic Sustainability Office. The new garden is located off of Mckenzie Avenue across from the athletic fields. There are 90 plots at the gardens, including individual allotment gardens, communal “giving gardens” for volunteers and food bank donations and garden plots used by advocacy groups and classes. Due to the high demand for plots, rentals are restricted to current UVic students, faculty and staff, though volunteers from outside the UVic community are welcome.
The Campus Community Garden holds work parties every week, where members can come and work on their individual plots in the company of other gardeners, or help out with the communal tasks and the giving gardens. If you have a workshop you would like to lead or a topic you would like to learn about, the Garden also offer workshops on gardening and food related topics throughout the year and is always looking for great new ideas.
