UEA students volunteer at local community garden

Nineteen students from UEA took time out from their studies to volunteer at Marlpit Community Garden, Norwich, and to learn how to grow sustainable organic food.
The students weeded and cleared the herb garden, created raised beds and moved cut grass for mulching. The group all enjoyed a hard-earned lunch together, which was provided by the Community Garden using produce grown on site.

I really enjoyed volunteering for the day,” said Daniela Anda Leon, a DEV Student. “I’d never heard of the concept of a community garden before, but I think it’s a great opportunity to be a part of the food production process as so many of us have become distant from the origins of what we eat.

“It was great to meet the promoter of the community garden and to see how passionate and proud he is of what they’ve achieved. Over the few hours we volunteered we received more than we gave. The people from the garden were very generous, welcoming and keen to share their knowledge.”
The event was supported by the Sustainability team and Emily Lewis (click to read more), Assistant Environment Officer, also took part. “It was great to see students from UEA giving something back to the community. They also learnt a lot about sustainable food and the benefits of volunteering.”
