Signature event

The Community Plant Giveaway

September 16, 2022

This project is built upon last year’s Celebrate Together plant giveaway, as part of the larger Bicentennial Celebrations, of which Sustainability is the central theme. Building on the success of last year’s event where 6,000 plants (4,000 Tagetes and 2,000 Tradescantias) were grown at Macdonald Campus farm and distributed throughout McGill campuses (downtown, Macdonald, Campus Outaouais, Gault) and downtown Montreal over the course of three days.

This year’s event will be a flagship event of the Bicentennial’s Sustainable Futures Festival – a week of programming where students, staff, faculty, alumni, local and global community partners will be invited to come together to express what sustainable futures and communities mean to them, as we enter our third century.
