Macdonald Student Ecological Garden

We do it because we want to eat good food. Because we want to do something meaningful with our hands, not just in theory. try it out, see how it works! Because we love to get to know people. Because we think the greatest power a university has, is in its students. We're working with 1 1/4 acres of land to sustainably produce vegetables for McGill community and its surroundings. This is a student-run, student-driven project. what manifests comes directly from what we want to see in it.

Farm to School

Farm to school is a project based at the Macdonald Campus of the McGill University where our goal is to offer education about the environment and agronomy to young students from the island of Montréal and the surrounding areas. We organize workshops with elementary schools where we teach modules on our campus. We also supply these educational modules to teachers so that they can use them in their classrooms. The modules are build following the guidelines set out by the Québec Ministry of Education in the course AGRI 482 special topic.

Association des futur(e)s agronomes du Québec

AFAQ is an association made up of motivated students that are interested in agriculture and in the practice of agronomy in Quebec. It promotes the profession of agronomist (“agronome”) among Mac students and it creates the link between the students, the "Ordre des Agronomes du Québec (OAQ)" and McGill University. This will be done through various funny activities such as one-day internship “Agronome d’un jour”, movie nights, contests with prizes, guest speakers and more! AFAQ is also responsible for the sale of the “Mémento”, the official book for the OAQ admission exam.
