Increase Food Production

This land sustained Indigenous communities long before James Dunsmuir established a working farm at Hatley Castle. Your gift will transform the seven-acre Walled Garden into a model organic garden and living lab that boosts food security and feeds community.

Restore Garden Heritage

Our magnificent heritage gardens are now more than 100 years old. There is much to be done to protect and enhance the Royal Roads gardens for the future. What will your gift grow?

Commemorative Giving

Whether you come here to relax, reflect or re-energize, let us help you celebrate what the gardens have meant to you and the important people in your life.

Class of ’69 gives back in memory of Ted Bade

They began their decades of service to their country together in a special place. Now, the Class of 1969 from the Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC) is looking to the past while contributing to the future of Royal Roads University.  And they’re doing it in the name of a fallen classmate and comrade.

Join us to celebrate a friend or loved one in your life.

Garden Revitalization

Help protect the cherished greenspace of Royal Roads gardens and grounds for generations to come.

Your donation will work to restore and revitalize the Japanese gardens and historic Glass House, build community food production and expand educational programming.

The Vision in Bloom campaign marks the beginning of work on this important community initiative. From beehives to benches, and food security to a living lab, there are so many ways this exciting initiative will engage the public and support the community.
