The garden, located at West Campus, provides a gardening opportunity to Queen's community members and creates a space where people can come together and share experiences and learn new skills.
This popular initiative has been operating since 2010 and consistently has a waiting list for spots. Interested gardeners are encouraged to sign up as early as possible, as garden plots will be assigned on a ‘first come first serve basis.'
There are 19 raised garden plots, approximately 3 feet by 7 feet, located at the West Campus site adjacent to the stone house near Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd. Gardeners pay an annual rental fee of $25, which provides access to the site during the season (May 1 to October 31), a garden plot, water and gardening tools.
No prior gardening experience is required, as each plot is maintained by an individual renter. If you do lack experience, it may be a great opportunity to learn from the other members.
To reserve your garden plot, or receive more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
