MECKLENBURGH SQUARE'S MEDICINAL GARDEN
BRUNSWICK SQUARE'S MEDICINAL GARDEN
UCL staff have contributed to the Square's medicinal garden
The Medicinal Herb Spiral and Bed on the North East corner of the garden was set up in 2010. It was made by expert dry stone-wallers with slate from Snowdonia and contains 150 herbs that have historically been used to treat illness, and strengthen constitution.
A UCL staff-led project to educate students on medicinal plants
UCL's school of Pharmacy Library staff have teamed up with the Friends of Brunswick Square (a local community group), to create a Medicinal Garden in Brunswick Square. The library team organise events throughout the year for volunteers to help grow the garden.
UCL's Wild Bloomsbury campaign wants to reintroduce nature into the city
Our goal is to create a vibrant and liveable Bloomsbury by re-introducing nature and increasing the health and well-being of our community. We will identify space for and implement natural interventions such as green walls, brown roofs and pocket gardens across the Bloomsbury area.
ZERO FOOD WASTE UCL
ENVIRONMENTAL COLLECTIVE UCL
A UCL student run group that tackles food waste on campus
Zero Food Waste is a project that re-distributes food from where it is in excess to where it is scarce: we move hundreds of unsold meals from UCL cafés to homeless shelters. Founded by Diego Garcia-Vega with the help of Camila Montesinos in 2018
