The Edible Campus project aims to reinvigorate our skills, knowledge and interest in eating more locally.  By increasing the amount of food grown within St Andrews we can reduce out carbon footprint and benifit the health of the community.

Edible Campus is funded by the Climate Challenge Fund and The University of St Andrews.

Regular Garden Session

We host garden sessions almost daily.  This is where the bulk of our seasonal work gets done such as planting, weeding, mulching and harvesting.  Weather you want to come for a chat or to lend a hand in seasonal activities, find out where and when we are on our events calender.

Skillshares and Events

Edible campus aims to share our knowledge for food growing though specialised events.  We want you to learn specific garden skills as well as cooking and preserving.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Growing and eating food locally means we use less food miles and reducing our carbon footprint – so we want to know how much food we are harvesting.  

In each garden, there is a scale and a record book, either in a shed or in a watertight box.  Please write down what you take and how much it weights.
