The Horticulture society was founded in 2014 with the aim of educating and engaging students in general horticultural activities and knowledge. What we do;
Community – First and foremost we want you to make new friends and feel welcome in our society. We try to accommodate for everybody’s tastes and host movie nights, coffee mornings and social events which is a great platform to socialise with other people and get involved in the community.
Cultivation – Our society grows organic fruits and vegetables in the UCD community garden. We have access to basic tools and equipment so you can learn to garden with us whether we are sowing seeds in the vegetable garden, making compost, pruning an apple tree or Beekeeping in the Apiary.
Education – We want you to learn new skills and educate yourself with us . We host educational/practical events throughout the year ranging from Apple juicing workshop, gardening classes, wild wooodland walks, honey bee and giant pumpkin growing lectures.
We look forward to you joining our awesome society so get involved 🙂
