Apple picking and Juicing with Leeds Urban Harvest


Meet at the Sustainable Garden at 12pm and we will set off to collect apples from our fruit trees on campus. We’ll get back to the garden around 1pm where we’ll scrat and juice the apples. Please wear suitable clothing.

If you come late and want to join us en route, call Rita – 07837 800579 or John – 07800 874069

The regular edible gardening session will start at 2pm as usual.

Students as Leeds Residents

University life for many students involves making a move out into the communities of Leeds with friends and running a household for the first time. Moving in to your own home is an exciting time for every student. Many areas close to the University have a high proportion of students living within them, but no area could be considered as being ‘student only’. Your neighbours could be like you, young professionals, elderly people or a family. Call around to your neighbours and introduce yourself. You’ll be living next to each other for a year so you might as well call in and say hello!
