The Urban Bee Garden

This roof garden is part of an initiative by the Environment team in creating more green spaces across campus to aid pollinators. Installed by Hill Holt Wood, an environmental charity, the planters and pots are sustainably sourced and recyclable. The trellises are made from Hazelwood, grown on site at Norton Disney. All of the plants are pollinator friendly, such as buddleia, lavender, heather, honeysuckle and jasmine.

The Urban Bee Garden is run by the Student Wellbeing Department. They will be hosting weekly garden sessions and using the area for outdoor meetings with students and colleagues. To get involved in the gardening sessions please contact the Student Wellbeing Department

Project updates
