Help prepare the Guild walk planter for winter iusing a range of Alpines, herbs and seasonal fruit and vegetables. The Sustainability Team are working to increase biodiverity and food growing on campus using wall pocket planters. So, if you are a keen gardener, or just fancy giving it a go, join us for a fun session of gardening.
Monday 14 November from 11am – 12pm. Meet at the Guild wall by the Bikioske outside the Mountford Entrance.
Grow your own herbs as the Guild’s Sustainability Team show you how to plant (and most importantly keep alive) your very own herb pot for your kitchen window sill.
You will be provided with a kit consisting of a pot, compost and a choice of seeds and we will show you how to put them all together to grow the ultimate missing ingredient.
Come along and become the ultimate plant parent!
