University students growing their own food.
At Universities and colleges movements have already been underway the last few years to encourage the growing of wildflowers on campus sites improving the biodiversity support mechanisms that as responsible citizens we should be undertaking.
Some student groups have led by example by engaging their respective University Estates Departments and requesting that space be allocated to them so that they may grow their own food and encourage other students to partake in this positive practice.
The benefits are obvious with empowerment of some level of self-sufficiency, fitness (growing and maintaining crops) social engagement and meeting other people and improving campus sustainability.... you will no doubt find many other benefits to this work.
This video is a platform to encourage all University students and staff (and schools, communities etc.) nationally and internationally to begin their own food growing programme. What can you do?
