Welcome to the Dalhousie Urban Garden! We are a Student Run, Student Funded Dalhousie Society that aims to add more green space to both Halifax and Dalhousie. We are open to all students and the public alike! Come check us out, behind the Goldberg Computer Science Building on Dalhousie’s Studley Campus (on Henry Street).



The Dalhousie Urban Garden is a student-run, student-funded community garden situated on Dalhousie University’s Studley Campus. We are funded by a Dalhousie Student Levy and operate as a Type I student society under the Dalhousie Urban Garden. The Dalhousie Urban Garden Society (DUGS) oversees garden operations and directs programming. We value skill sharing and collaborative learning. DUGS hosts workshops on food preservation, container gardening, herbal medicine and more, offered by our volunteers or community members.

The Dalhousie Urban Garden functions as common pool garden space, we produce going to our volunteers and back to students via the Loaded Ladle and/or Dalhousie Food Bank. Our primary purpose is not large volume food production, but we seek to maximize our land and ensure no food is wasted.
