SGSD wildlife and wellbeing garden

Friday 31 March 2017

Staff from the School of Geography & Sustainable Development gathered at our Observatory Building yesterday to plan a new wildlife and wellbeing garden.

Organized by Dr Eoin McLaughlin (SGSD) and Ms Andrea Roach (Transition), the group discussed plans for an outdoor Observatory space to benefit SGSD staff and students, as well as the wider University community and local wildlife. Afterwards, Mr Alistair Macloed (Transition Manager) spoke to staff about the opportunities for research, teaching and impact agendas between Transition and SGSD – building on the success of nearly 10-years of the Sustainable Development degree programme at the University of St Andrews.
