LUU Rooted is LUU’s edible gardening project
We run volunteer sessions every Monday and Wednesday which are free, open to everyone and there’s no need to commit or book, you just turn up.
You can come along for a short time or the whole session, no experience needed. There’s always some produce to take home and lots of opportunities to ask questions, learn new skills, share ideas and get stuck in to growing tasty organic vegetables.
It’s a great way to chill out, do something new and meet new friends in a beautiful space. All welcome, refreshments provided. We provide tools, and tea and snacks.
There are toilets nearby. If you aren’t sure where we are please text/call 07706643035.
If you’d like any more information or you’d like to subscribe to our mailing list for more regular updates, then please send us a message on here or drop us an email to:
We manage LUU’s Roof garden, the beds around the Terrace, the Old Bar planters, the Sustainable Garden and two forest garden areas at Lyddon Terrace and St George’s Field.

History of the project
LUU Rooted (previously called The Bardon Grange Project) started in 2009 and is a food growing project that gives students, staff, and the wider community the opportunity to grow organic food in a communal growing space.
Previously we had an old walled garden at Bardon Grange (within the grounds of Oxley halls of residence) in North West Leeds that was owned by Leeds University.
