A brief description of the institution’s community garden:
The UVic Campus Community Garden is an affiliate group of the UVic Students Society that manages an urban agriculture space on campus, with practical support from Facilities Management and the Office of Campus Planning and Sustainability. There are 90 plots at the garden, including individual allotment plots, 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 the external UVic community are welcome to use the designated communal plots.
