Community Action Groups
Gardening burns 250 calories an hour â€“ so why not burn some off by volunteering to help transform OxGrowâ€™s Edible Community Garden on the former Corpus Christi Sports Ground? So far OxGrow has:
â€¢ Planted 1,000 trees and dug in lots of potatoes
â€¢ Made compost bins from unwanted wooden pallets and bicycle inner tubes
â€¢ Sown seeds for purple carrot, lettuce, chicory and laned cress
â€¢ Sown a wildflower meadow of poppies, cornflowers and foxgloves
Staff and students can volunteer any Sunday from 1â€4pm throughout the year â€“ all tools are provided â€“ just turn up!
