Help plant our new garden on campus

Staff and student volunteers are needed to help plant edible delights at the new sustainable garden on campus.


The garden will feature a mini forest garden, wildflower meadows, an edible hedge, and a space to grow vegetables, salads and herbs. The aim is that the area will become a central hub on campus; a communal place to relax, as well as providing research opportunities.

The garden has been a collaborative project between Estates, Security, Health and Safety, Sustainability, academic research staff and also the Bardon Grange Project who will be managing the edible areas.

Initially there will be a series of lunchtime and evening gardening sessions to plant the edible areas of the garden, which is located next to the Roger Stevens building in Chancellors Court.

Sessions will take place: 

Tuesday 28 May, 12.30-1.30pm  and 5-6pm

Wednesday 29 May, 12.30-1.30pm

Thursday 30 May, 12.30-1.30pm

Thursday 6 June, 12.30-1.30pm and 5-6pm

There is limited space, so if you'd like to help out please sign up to the events listed on the Leeds University Union Bardon Grange web page to avoid disappointment. Alternatively, let Caroline Scott know via email.
