Boots 'n Blooms

This event is rooted in collaboration and team work. Boots 'n Blooms is a testament to Friends of the Garden, a mighty group of green thumb volunteers who have donated countless hours of their time over the last decade to help maintain the gardens on campus.

Round up a team of up to five colleagues or sign us as an individual and  participate in one of the following activities:

  • prune a shrub or vine
  • plant an annual
  • edge a bed or walk
  • weed a garden
  • garden with a friend
  • mulch a planting
  • add some plant labels
  • wash a bench

There will be give-away's and prizes for those who participate! Think amazing hanging basket!  Remember to wear your best wellies and earn bragging rights with our Boots ‘n Blooms trophy.

Win a catered lunch in the Gardens with our Dean, David Gray - awarded to the best co-ordinated and original team! (think team spirit, coordination, team name or costume!).
