Leave your mark on campus: Planting jam grove

Drop by the Centre for Lifelong Learning on 13 and 14 March to help change the face of our campus in the first of a series of garden projects; planting a jam grove.

The idea came from within Warwick, after a range of workshops, events and consultations identified a strong desire among our community to make our campus more inviting, engaging, sustainable and productive. From this, the idea of a series of garden projects has developed starting with an accessible garden of fruit trees and berries outside the Centre for Lifelong Learning at Westwood.

Everyone is welcome to join the Vice-Chancellor and Lady Thrift on Friday 13 March, 3.30-5.30pm, to plant the trees, enjoy some tea and cake and share your ideas for future projects. There will be another chance to get involved at the planting session of the shrubs on Saturday 14 March at 10.30-12pm.

The garden will have seating and be accessible to all. The area can be used for informal and formal meetings and teaching as well as being a place to relax, to help out with maintaining the space and, in the years to come, to help yourselves to fruit.

Please RSVP to or call 02476 524529 to help her anticipate numbers.
