A multi-use space for students, staff and the local community, run in partnership with East Kent Mind
We are the Kent Community Oasis Garden (KentCOG), a collection of students, staff and community members working to create a sustainability hub centred around growing food.

KentCOG Student Ambassadors for 2023-24 are Charlie(left) and Ameira(right).
'We are both final year students at Kent who have found the garden to be a place of joy and community separate from our daily hectic uni lives. We both love the garden and are passionate about using our roles as ambassadors to make sure every single volunteer also feels the way we do about this amazing space. We are learning how to do these new roles and are always open to speak to anyone about anything regarding the garden, whether that is feedback, criticism or just a small question.'
Come along and enjoy the space.
