We wanted to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers and to everyone who is involved in Growhampton’s sustainability work on and off campus … from cooking and harvesting to caring for the chickens and supporting the Hive Café.
The time that people donate is precious and we couldn’t do it without you!
And what a year it has been! In terms of the garden, we’ve harvested a whopping 360 kg of organic produce over the last 12 months! This equates to 4476 meals grown right here on campus! Saving hundreds of food miles in the process.
And the flock of 17 chickens have also been busy, laying 1330 eggs since January and making lots of new friends in the process. A big thank you to all the chicken volunteers this year!
There have been so many highlights over the last 12 months, here are some of our favourite moments:
As the light fades, Growhampton will be dormant for a couple of weeks. BUT we’re massively excited to see you on the other side!
Check out the website and social media to keep updated.
Spring beckons, resilient seeds are ready to rise up and we look forward, with you, to grow a brighter, better world.
Lots of love,
Celia and Ollie
