Community Food

The UoN provides space and support for student and staff-led community food projects. These include:

  • Food grown on campus that can be picked and taken for free, including:
      • apples from the orchard behind the Hotel on University Park
      • various herbs and medicinal plants on most of our campuses, including a dedicated herb and medicinal garden on our Sutton Bonington campus
      • wild edible plants such as wild garlic, berries, nuts and fungi. The Friends of University Park have foraging events throughout the year




  • Allotments:
      • We have one on our Sutton Bonington campus, ran by the Allotment Society
      • On our University Park campus we have two; one ran by the Conservation and Nature Society, and an additional one behind the Cripps Health Centre that can be accessed by staff and students
