Seeds Sown for an Edible Campus this Year

With Spring on the way volunteers have a been avidly sowing seed ready for planting out once the frost has past. Transition is keen to help you take on your own patch of growing space and still has a wide variety of vegetable seeds available for FREE to any departments or halls with small growing spaces. This might be a tub, container or larger plot that brings a little bit of interest to your corner of the University. Just email us for some advice and assistance in getting your growing spaces on track for a productive year ahead. You can also join us for our weekly seed sowing and growing workshops – These are held every Wednesday from 5.30pm to 7.30pm at the Transition Flat, 7 Woodburn terrace.

 

Albany Park’s New Growing Space

Transition have been supporting the development of a new growing space at Albany Park and after much planning plus the usual winter weather they are now ready to get Digging! The group are keen for staff and students from across the University to get involved in the project and will be holding their first session on site as part of Greenweek. on Wednesday from 10pm to 4pm. Make sure you wear proper footwear and clothing and check the facebook group for updates due to weather etc.

 

Interhall Energy Competition

Well done to Gannochy for winning the February Monthly Hall Prize. The hall used 12.3% less electricity this February compared with last year, pushing December’s winner, Andrew Melville Hall, into second place. You can also get involved with the Interhall photo competition which could get you a lovely £20 Luvians voucher !
