Community Gardeners

 

Join us on our walk to and around Exeter's Community Garden, a green space on campus that aims to further the causes of sustainability and biodiversity and promotes wellbeing and mindfulness. 

Once we get there feel free to get hands on and do some gardening with us, helping to keep the garden thriving! No skill needed but a love of plants, wildlife and gardening is a must!

 

Meet us at the Welcome Desk in the Forum at 2:30 to walk down to the gardens with us.

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. 

 

The Community Gardeners are a Staff Life open group who go get their hands dirty helping out in the community garden every Wednesday from 3. 

 

Staff Choir Rehearsal

The Streatham Staff Choir invites you into the magnificent acoustic of the Mary Harris Chapel to hear us sing and maybe even learn some new songs with us!

 

The Streatham Staff Choir are a Staff Life group who meet weekly on Monday lunchtimes to reap the wellbeing benefits of coming together and singing! They are led by Emma Welton and are just for fun - no previous singing experience required, and work towards optional performances. The staff choir is a relaxed and sociable group for University staff who enjoy singing and like making music with other people. Songs are taught by ear, so there’s no need to be able to read music! 


Please let us know if you're hoping to attend!
