The School of Biological & Environmental Sciences has been working on a project to improve the environment at the back of the Byrom Street Campus. 10 urban wildlife gardens are being created to attract wildlife on to the campus, to make an attractive space for teaching activities and generally, to make the campus a greener and friendlier place for both us humans and for biodiversity.
We are looking to establish a staff Environmental Gardening Group for anyone who might enjoy the chance to get outdoors and get involved in helping maintain and develop the wildlife gardens. Activities would involve digging, planting wildflower meadows, grass cutting and a variety of other gardening tasks.
We plan to hold two initial trial gardening sessions on the Byrom Street Campus on Wednesday 27 April 1-3pm and Wednesday 4 May 11am-1pm, and then at 2 week intervals.
All Staff are welcome, whether you have wonderfully green fingers and lots of gardening experience, or you have never gardened before; you could really help create some great new campus greenspaces.
If you are interested in being involved, please contact Liz Cousins.
