We operate the Learning Garden at SFU Burnaby, which acts as a student-centred food-growing and learning space. If you would like to request a plot, please complete the Garden Plot Rental form.
Embark Learning Garden
The Learning Garden is a garden facility at SFU Burnaby, located on the south side of TASC1. This temporary garden space is a community-centred learning, social and event space. Our members will learn how to grow, eat, and share campus-grown food while making SFU Burnaby more sustainable.
Each season, plots are rented to student groups such as clubs, departmental students unions, and graduate caucuses, as well as SFU departments, labs and instructors. The plots may be used as part of a class, as was recently done with EDUC 454. Embark hosts events and workshops about growing and using local food, garden management, and business development in our region’s local food sector. The garden space is also available for students, staff, and faculty to book outdoor meetings and events at no cost!
Embark’s Learning Garden was just moved to south of TASC 1 in a beautiful new space. Come visit the garden!
