Hello BU Students, Faculty, Staff, and Surrounding Garden Community!

Did you know that there are two community gardens at Brandon University where vegetables are grown to aid in the fight against food insecurity in our community? Our produce is donated to Samaritan House Ministries and the BUSU food bank! The gardens are also used as teaching classrooms for Mini University students.

We are excited to start gardening again this year, and definitely can't do it without your help! We won't ask for much of your time, but would like to organize a few work bees over the summer, and we are looking for as many hands as we can get, to help us with planting and caring for our crops.

Hello BU Students, Faculty, Staff, and Surrounding Community!


We are looking for another fantastic group of volunteers who would like to help us with planting the gardens!

Brandon University has two community gardens which are used to increase food security and education in the community. The produce we grow is donated to Samaritan House Ministries and the BUSU Food bank. MiniU Students and BU Early Learners also use the garden space as an outdoor classroom. How cool?!

Planting Work Bee →

It’s planting time! Our gardens are now ready for the second BU
Community Garden Work Bee, which will be Thursday, June 7th from 6-8pm
and we need YOUR help!
The compost has been spread, the gardens have been tilled, and we’ve got
seedlings waiting to be planted so all we need to do now is get our
hands dirty and begin planting!
If you’re interested, please RSVP to Ashley Sadler (Green Futures BU
Garden Coordinator):
On Thursday, please meet us in front of the doors to the RDI building, 
beside the bookstore, as we’ll start with the planters there and make
our way to the Flora beds. Gloves will be provided, but feel free to
bring your own and make sure to bring water!
