We’re more than halfway through our Sustainability Campaign Calendar! In April we focussed on biodiversity, linking out to some books on the subject at the University of Lincoln Library. We also welcomed goslings onto the campus for the first time this year.
We spent some time promoting the Kitchen Garden and what’s growing. We now hold a weekly meet up every Wednesday lunchtime between 1pm – 2pm. Volunteers can meet us behind Witham House at this time and undertake general upkeep of the garden, weeding, planting and watering, as well as harvesting when vegetables are matured.
Small gardens and vegetable patches are becoming ever more vital in encouraging wildlife and in supporting pollinators. The hope is that the Kitchen Garden is not only productive, sustainable, and community-based but that it becomes a positive resource for our local wildlife as well.
Lincoln International Business School also held its first Sustainability Conference, “Sustainability at LIBS: Showcase, Share & Strategize”, which members of our team were invited to in order to deliver a presentation on our commitments at the University of Lincoln to sustainability.
The conference covered sustainability in branding, business and education, featuring student-led presentations on recycling issues in accommodation and the problem with plastic.
Our May theme is “Explore Lincoln”.
