At 10am on Thursday morning the Vice chancellor welcomed visitors to the Harris Garden to create a wild flower space on campus with native seeds from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew as part of the Big Lottery funded Grow Wild project.
Students and Reading community groups transformed 300 square metres of bare soil, using seeds mixed with sand, into a potential a new colourful wildlife habitat. Next spring will show the results of today’s work.
The event was organised By Becky Thomas and Giles Reynolds in a collaboration between the School of Biological Sciences and the UoR Grounds team. Find out what others are saying about Grow Wild by visiting the vibrant social hub www.growwilduk.com/letsgrowwild and blog.
