There is a significant history of food cultivation on these lands. I talk a little about it in my video this week from the Walled Garden, where there was once an extensive 4-acre kitchen garden.

This is something our Royal Roads community has shown great interest in doing again. Can you imagine a large-scale garden with fruit, vegetables and herbs?

Growing food is one action we can take to address a growing hunger and food security problem. It will also help advance our climate action goals and stimulate learning, teaching and research in areas related to food and food insecurity. 

What do you think? Email me if you’d like to be a part of a small planning group.
