What a busy last week! In addition to starting our referendum campaign, we got a lot of work done in the garden. We dug in our rye cover crops to feed the Giving Garden soil, added manure to the permaculture garden, and started some seeds for veggies and native flowers! Have you started planting for your garden yet?
In the upcoming UVSS election on Wednesday, we are asking students to support contributing student fees to the ongoing growth of the garden. With an additional $0.76/full-time student and $0.37/part-time student per semester we could offer more consistent services and increase our ability to grow more food for students.
If you haven’t heard much about our campaign yet, check out this video (see postbelow) some of our gardeners made explaining why we are participating in the upcoming UVSS election.
If you support this campaign, please vote in favour of our referendum on March 4. Join our facebook event here and spread the word to others!
