RRU announces farm expansion, thanks to recent donation


Royal Roads University has received a $196K donation from TD Bank Group to support its farming projects and mission to tackle food insecurity. The donation will support an expansion of the Giving Garden, which provides food for those experiencing food insecurity, including seniors, single parents, newcomers to Canada, and students. RRU will also establish the Market Garden, an initiative that will supply produce for a campus farm stand; revenues from this will be reinvested into the farm. The university also plans to establish an Indigenous Medicine Garden and a Polyculture Orchard, and aims to double the number of trees and biodiversity in the area within the next two years.
