Our Garden

The NSU Garden

In spring 2019, the Native Students Union received a garden plot from the UVic Campus Community Garden. Our garden will grow medicinal plants native to W̱SÁNEĆ & Lekwungen territories as well as non-invasive medicines from other nations of Turtle Island.

We will be hosting propagation and planting workshops as well as host educational volunteer days.

To sign up for weekly watering, or to request certain medicines, email contact@uvicnsu.ca
