Urban gardening seems to be in the news a bunch lately.. I just came across an article in the gazette this morning over coffee and another article on Spacing Montreal. The city has a number of community gardens scattered around town, though that number has been reduced with 167 of them having been closed due to soil contamination.
At McGill University, a group called “Campus Crops” has formed with the goal of identifying underused places on campus and turning them into productive agricultural land. The folks over at Spacing Montreal have a great article.. enjoy!
