As the climate impact and health threats associated with industrial food systems grow ever stronger, demand for local and sustainable food systems also grows. The Campus Food Garden is a student designed and led project, building an on-campus urban garden in unused and vacant spaces of Uppsala University campus. Funded by the Uppsala University Climate Pot and CCL, the initiative aims to explore the potential for local and sustainable food production system in reducing Uppsala University’s climate impact.
Visit The Campus Garden’s Facebook page for regular updates and to find out how you can get involved, or connect with project leaders and Uppsala University students Otilia and Sagnik. They are encouraging all growers – old or new, staff, student of Uppsalabo – to come and join in with them.
You can also read more about them on Uppsala University’s student magazine, ERGO.
