University Allotment

The University of Dundee community allotment is a space at the botanic gardens where students and staff (or anyone who's interested) can get together to grow vegetables! It's a great opportunity to chat, exercise, and spend some healthy time outdoors. We meet every few weeks, and would love to have you whether you're a seasoned gardener, or have never set foot in a garden before!

The harvested food is then shared between the volunteers, and donated to a number of local charities, including the Discovery Food Project.

For more information please contact Alasdair Hood.
