This presentation was given as part of the 'Building Socially Responsible Institutions' Summit at the EAUC-Scotland Conference 2017 by Severine Monvoisin, Community Garden Coordinator, Edinburgh College.
This presentation highlights how the Community Garden at Edinburgh College is positively impacting on the college students as well as the wider community, for whom the Garden may be their first engagement with further education. The Garden attract people from primary school age up to age 80+, and has benefits for health and wellbeing.
Important links to the curriculum are created for students, which equip students with transferable core and employability skills, as well as greater sustainability understandings.
However there are capacity and funding issues, and measuring success is difficult.
