Everything’s coming up carrots 

Magnifying glass

As part of the efforts to improve both the look of Mackay below Sherbrooke, and relations with the neighbours (see Journal, April 15, 2010) greenhouse volunteers are preparing the planters beside the Hall Building.

The soil has been renewed and enriched with compost, produced at the Loyola facility, in anticipation of a planned vegetable garden. The practical and green-positive project will spruce up the neighbourhood. More planters may eventually be constructed on the mezzanine behind the Hall Building to expand the project if it proves successful.

There are also plans to extend the conversation between university reps and the broader community below De Maisonneuve next fall, developing more projects over the course of the year.
