Bardon Grange Project
Bardon Grange is Leeds University Students' Union's community food growing project. Our volunteer sessions and events are open to anyone; students, staff and members of the wider community.
There are so many reasons to grow your own food; it's a great way to get outdoors, healthy, cheap, and good for the planet in so many ways! Our weekly volunteer sessions are an opportunity to learn how to grow organic food, meet new people, get active outdoors, and eat delicious food!
As well as two drop-in volunteer sessions a week, we also have a salad growing enterprise which supplies the Union and local caterers with tasty local food, and run workshops, courses and events to do with sustainable living.
In promoting local food and urban agriculture, Bardon Grange also supports local biodiversity, improves employability skills for students, and creates strong links between students, the University and the wider community. We are members of The Land Workers' Alliance, linking community food growing to the larger picture of food sovereignty.
...we wouldn't be here without our wonderful volunteers - come and get stuck in!
