Community Garden 1st May: Hugelkultur Special

Wed 01 May 2019 12:00-15:00

Meet at Students' Union Building 1 Reception

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. 

This month we'll be making a Hugelkultur bed made from campus waste wood around our seating area! This type of bed is more fertile, retains more water and will be great for the edible plants soon to be planted in it! 

Please meet us at The Students' Union Building 1 main reception at midday, where we will guide you down to the gardening session. 

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 ( to let us know in advance.
