Plant a seed at the Kent Community Oasis Garden

Visit the Kent Community Oasis Garden to discuss sustainability and wellbeing, and take home your own herb, tomato, or flower seed.

You will be shown around the Kent Community Oasis Garden and find out how to get involved. While you make the paper pots for the plants, we’ll discuss re-using packaging for planting seeds and recycling on campus. You will learn about seeds, what they need to thrive, and you will get to choose a herb, tomato or flower seed to take home and grow. You will need to save some everyday items to use for your planting: for example, bring the cardboard inside of toilet rolls, trays from mushrooms or vegetables, tins from soup or beans etc (food containers need to be washed and allowed to dry).

Feedback from students from the first session

“I would love to come back and spend more time in the garden.”

“Using general household items for planting is genius!”
