Student Eats Plus

Student Eats Plus is our pay-for service designed to help institutions set up new growing spaces and projects. Through Student Eats Plus, we will invest time with your students’ union and institution to develop a site into a growing space, provide technical advice on site layout, disability access, and soil testing. We will train your growing group, so you know what will or won’t work, choose the right crops, and create growing plans. You will be supported throughout, including organising events in the garden, selling produce, establishing a student-led growing society, engaging staff to ensure continuity, and widening community involvement. Sign up for Student Eats Plus through the NUS rate card HERE.
