The Community Garden provides a regular opportunity for both experienced and new gardeners to get involved in their green campus and grow their own fruit and vegetables for free. By producing our own fruit and veg we are minimising our environmental impact and reducing food miles (and eating really tasty food, of course). The garden is situated in a beautiful and quiet corner of the campus, allowing you to take a well-needed break from the fast-paced, noisy, environment that can accompany student life.
Volunteer sessions have been taking place regularly in term time. Please see below for session dates.
The community garden is open to all students. You do not need to study an environmental subject or have sustainability experience to come along!
Check out the map below to see where the Community Garden is located (only a 3-minute walk from The Students' Union):
Please note that due to campus building works there is restricted disabled access to the community garden. If you have special access needs and want to visit the garden, please send our staff an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know in advance.
