The Green Loop Project  acquired an allotment in February 2019, close to Talbot Campus where students, staff and people in the community can come to help out and learn about growing food organically and sustainably.

There's lots of work to be done, weeding, turning soil, digging in compost etc. If you want to get outdoors, make new friends and learn to grow your own food, join the Facebook page where the latest information is posted.  There are regular weekend sessions throughout the term.

 

What is the Green Loop?

The Green Loop project is a not-for-profit ethical food social enterprise, led by Bournemouth Campus Collective and is fully supported by NUS Student Eats, SUBU, the BU Estates Department and the student community itself.

 

What is the polytunnel?

We have a polytunnel on Talbot Campus where we propagate our plants to go out into multiple community gardens, on campus and in the local surroundings.
Our aim is to provide an ethical alternative for students by growing organic veg ourselves. We believe food is the most powerful tool we have that connects people. 

 

How will this project benefit the Bournemouth community?

  • Affordable free food for Students.
  • Health and wellbeing benefits.
  • Cross community colaboration.

 

Who cares?

The BU Campus Collective (previously the Permaculture Society) care for and look after the polytunnel, and invite you to join them on this project.  If you want to get outdoors and learn about growing food in harmony with nature, in relaxing green surroundings, then this is the project for you.
