    Allotment Committee (Galashiels)

    Heriot-Watt University

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Grow your own fruit, veg and herbs!

    Join the committee managing the allotment at our campus in Galashiels. 

    The Galashiels Allotment was created for students (and staff) to grow their own fruit, veg and herbs. The aim of the allotment is to have an outdoor community space that supports students' physical and mental wellbeing, as well as allowing them to live sustainably by growing their own food. The members of the committee represent the staff and student voice of those who work and study at SBC. The committee will meet quarterly. 

    The members of the committee represent the staff and student voice of those who work and study at SBC, so we are looking for someone who will collate ideas, feedback on progress, and provide input on what the allotment users want and need to support them to grow sustainably. 

    All users of the allotment space are part of a community and therefore we encourage all users to support each other. Examples of this might be offering to water each other’s plants when people are on holiday, sharing produce grown, organising days to weed the allotment together, organising picnics.
