UoS Herbaceous

Our university campus site shoud be fully utilised and made resouceful to university members and the local community. The excess space can be used to grow our own organic vegetables, or plots can be distributed among the different faculties to create their own bespoke vegetable plots. University members could enjoy the harvest with a 'honesty box', cafes on campus site could buy the vegetables with subsidised price; cooked meal price made more affordable to all. The project can make the campus site more appealing; gardening as healthy and therapeutic activity. UoS will get a 'face-lift' from this project (:

Hi Sevendy,

As Dan has said, space is extremely limited. We can look into alternative options on a perhaps smaller scale, with relevant societies at the Students' Union. Any updates would be communicated on our SUSU blog, Facebook, and Twitter.

Hi Sevendy,

Apologies this has taken a while for a response, as I'm sure you are aware, the University are reluctant to give any space to this kind of project. We are trying to find a solution and when we do you will be the first to know.
