Exeter community garden
The Exeter community garden is a joint initiative between the University’s grounds team and the Students’ Guild. Founded in June 2011, the community garden started with six vegetable beds and a bee hive donated by the Psychology Department. Today the garden has an orchard of heritage fruit trees, a glass house built by volunteers, a wooden hut (the observatory), two polytunnels and a cob seat. In 2015, an area of the orchard was made into a physic garden to promote mental wellbeing and the importance of green spaces.
Volunteers meet every Wednesday at the garden from 15:00 onwards. Students, staff and local residents are all welcome to join. Skills not necessary, love for nature and gardening is a must.
