Come and help out in UC’s Community Gardens

New to campus, or been here a couple of years? Either way, you may not have realised that UC has a beautiful community garden, right here on campus!

Our gardens are your gardens too – they provide a relaxing spot to take a break, eat your lunch, or catch up with friends, right in the middle of campus.

Feel like getting your hands dirty? Want to learn more about organic gardening? Keen to meet some like-minded people? Come and join one of our weekly working bees! Spend time in the garden and take home some organic vegetables for dinner.

When: Every Friday afternoon, 1.00pm – 5.00pm (summer months) and 12.00pm – 4.00pm (winter months)
Where: Okeover Community Garden, off Engineering Road

Just bring some closed toe shoes, a drink bottle and a smile, we have the rest covered. Whether you’re already a keen gardener, or just starting out, we’d love to meet you!

Any questions? Check out our webpage, UC Community Gardens Facebook page, or email us at sustainability@canterbury.ac.nz.
