About

Sustainable Strathclyde are committed to reducing the environmental impact of the University of Strathclyde and promoting the wider engagement of staff and students with sustainability issues. We are a small team of staff based in the Estates Services of the University, though the Sustainable Strathclyde ethos has grown to be much more than that. We look after a small community garden on campus, with the help of a group of staff volunteers. We produce a small amount of vegetables which, in the past, we have donated to our volunteers, Kinning Park Complex and Glasgow City Mission. We are committed to engaging the University community with the project and sharing the benefits of sustainable, local and healthy food.
