Here at The Producers, we're all about promoting sustainability on campus. We're a volunteer-based group dedicated to planting, maintaining and harvesting veggies (or "produce") around campus.

Meet Your 2022 Coordinator

Hey guys,

I'm Sophie - the new Producers coordinator for '22! I'm super passionate about all things environment and sustainability - particularly when it comes to growing fresh fruit and veg. I believe veggie patch gardening can be accessible to all - no matter your time, space or monetary constraints - and provides a fun way to relax and reset from the demands of uni life. 

The Producers are always open to new volunteers - regardless of past experience or knowledge. So if you're looking to learn a bit more about sustainability, contribute to a greener campus, and grow your own food - Join The Producers today!
