Freshers 2021: Community Garden Session

Wednesday 15 September 2021 2pm - 4pm

Union Garden

Our garden is a place for all students, whether they have a well developed green thumb or are completely new to gardening. Come along to our sessions to get outside, meet some lovely people, and help us grow and develop our green oasis. 

We are always looking for new volunteers to help out and share this community garden with. We hold weekly gardening sessions on Wednesdays from 2pm - 4pm and everyone is welcome to join. If you are interested in joining then email Johannes Schamp, Sustainability Development Coordinator at and we’ll be able to provide you with more information. 

Don't forget gardening isn't just about digging and weeding, it's about getting outside, keeping fit and most of all making friends! We have everything in place to ensure our gardening sessions are safe and comply with COVID-19 regulations. 

Important - There are a number of beehives nearby so anyone allergic needs to be aware of high numbers of bees in Spring and Summer. 

Safety advice: We ask that you wear a mask if you can and hand sanitiser will be provided. If there are further safety precautions they will be clearly advertised here and around the event space. 

*All Union events are subject to change or cancellation and we continue to work closely with the University of Stirling and Scottish Government advice to ensure everything we do is safe for our students. Some events are also weather-dependent and may be cancelled or changed last minute. We will communicate any changes on this website and our social media channels.
