Back Out in the Sun!

Hello friends of the OC,

While ambulating around the campus, some of you may already have noticed that Organic Campus is up and running again outside the Shatner building/University Centre each Tuesday and Wednesday from 12-5pm. Though we typically close up shop until the fields are flooding with bounty in July, we have decided to continue to serve the McGill community this spring leading into the summer. Our produce selection is a bit less, yet each week brings more and more fresh, local vegetables from Farm True Food Ecostere; we are also supplementing some of our stores with a few items from other organic suppliers. Last week in fact saw asperagus, chives, dandelion greens, and rappini make their way to our tent, so life is looking greener already.

In the meantime, our tables are full of our famous sweet breads, Ethiopian lunch items, and vegan baked goods so come on by and stock up each week.

It has been a great year for our service with successful events like the True Ecosteria fundraiser, vegan cooking workshops, farm visits, and film screenings, but there is still so much we could do! If you are interested in writing articles for our blog, helping advertise around campus, heading up events, or pitching any other creative ideas for our service, please drop us a line at or come by our tent. We are always accepting volunteers too to help with distribution days, so come enjoy your summer days with us!

Organically Yours,

Organic Campus
