    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.

    Choose a Challenge

    As a challenge leader, you’ll be central to the success of our charity challenge event. With our help, you’ll make a recruitment plan specific to your campus and we’ll provide you with all the materials to help you recruit a team of fellow students. Once your team are on board, you will work alongside the Student Fundraising Officers at your chosen charity to provide one-to-one and group support to help get everyone to their fundraising targets and our team will provide you with all the support for the trip itself, including travel advice, training, pre-departure briefings, and more.
