Take a break – Okeover community garden

With Mental Health Awareness Week just finished, this year’s theme could not have been more relevant. This year, MHAW was all about celebrating ‘Nature is Key’, and what better way to take a break than an afternoon spent in the community garden?

If you need a break from your study and exam stress this year (or, at any time of year!) our garden is the perfect place to chill out. Bring your lunch, bring a book, have a nap… and if you feel like getting your hands dirty, our regular working bees are on every Friday from 1-5pm, throughout summer. Check out the Community Garden Facebook page for updates on working bees, and other events on during the year.

Another good page to follow (if you don’t already) is UC DigSoc – our official gardening club on campus. Check them out on Facebook too, and you’ll never miss a chance to garden (or eat pizza, if that’s more your thing).

At the end of term we held a pizza party for our valued volunteers. A huge thank you to all our wonderful volunteers – whether you have come once, or come every week, we couldn’t do it without you!
