The Exeter Community Garden is a long-term initiative established by members of the Students’ Guild, the University of Exeter and members of the community. Its aim is simple: to further the causes of sustainability, biodiversity, healthy eating and well-being in Exeter.
We are proud of our Devon setting and believe passionately in promoting its unique culture. By harnessing our individual skills, we endeavour to educate and equip our members with the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance both our understanding of the natural environment and our ability to engage with it.
We believe that the issues of food security and sustainability, habitat protection and promoting biodiversity are fundamentally interlinked and essential to tackling major challenges locally and globally. The Exeter Community Garden is not just a physical space in which to grow food, plant and improve the habitat, but an interchange of knowledge and ideas, and a green space where our members and the wider community could use and where mindfulness and well-being are encouraged. It is a shared experience.
