Help keep a good thing growing.

Learn how your donation in support of the gardens at Royal Roads University will help tackle food insecurity, act on reconciliation, establish community spaces and create biodiversity. Let’s get growing!

Help us reach 15,000 lbs. of produce annually for food insecure communities. Infrastructure is urgently needed to support the expanded Giving Garden, Polyculture Orchard, and newly established Indigenous Medicine Garden and Market Garden.

Help us complete the first phase of our planned revitalization of the treasured Japanese Gardens at RRU: the construction of a teahouse for tea ceremonies, immersive learning experiences and other community events.

Help us reimagine and restore the historic Glass House in our walled garden. As one of Canada’s oldest working greenhouses it has great potential to be a vibrant hub for teaching, learning and research at Royal Roads.
