Institute of Archaeology's Roof Garden
The Institute of Archaeology has a thriving green team. They’re actively involved improving UCL’s environmental impact; organising book fairs, photo competitions and scoring highly in the Green Impact programme.
Last year, a group of staff and students with a shared interest in starting a growing project got together to discuss their options. Their building has a large, south-facing roof terrace area, with plenty of space for plants.
The tomato crop was so successful they were even able to make chutney from it.
So with support from their building manager, they got started; growing chillies, mint, chives, oregano, basil, mint and heritage ‘Russian Black’ tomatoes in pots and grow-bags on the roof. The tomato crop was so successful they were even able to make chutney from it.
This year, they’re expanding the project and getting more staff and students involved. They’ve got big plans (and even an archaeological botanist on board), so watch this space.
