Coventry University’s grounds team have created an interactive campus for fun, learning and research replacing places of traditional planting and bedding with two new spaces of colour, smells and tastes; transformingunder-used urban corners into a pick your own campus of “what’s that and how do you cook it?”.
The schemes include a unique example of a publicly accessible forest garden, a kitchen herb garden and edible hedge. Fifty percent of the world’s population now lives in cities and in collaboration with its leading research groups into sustainable urban drainage and sustainable agroecology, Coventry offers an exemplar site of best practice, demonstrating that amenity and functionality can be combined with innovative and manageable schemes of perennial as well as annual planting.
The work at Coventry is recognised and supported by organisations such as Ryton Organic, Britain in Bloom and even its external auditors for ISO14001.
External parties agree that this award winning green campus offers best practice and is functional and attractive.
