The Landscape and Grounds Team manage our green spaces and have responsibility for ensuring that we protect and enhance our natural environment.
We are taking part in the Hedgehog Friendly Campus Project and are currently working towards our Sliver Award.
New SDG markers have been installed around the Canterbury campus that lead to our community garden project.

The Canterbury Campus is 300 acres of woodland, grassland, amenity areas and ponds. The Landscape and Grounds Team are responsible for its management, however, we all have a role in protecting this space and the wildlife that we share it with. Please take some time to explore the campus (Coming soon - nature trail information) and make a note of what you see.
It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.”
For conservation to be sustainable it can't be just about doing the actual conservation work, but doing it in a way that works for people and communities."
If you are someone that likes to wander around our campuses we would love to hear from you and find out what you have seen on campus - maybe you have heard a treecreeper in Canterbury's Bluebell Wood or a Fox cub in the secret woodland at Medway? We need your help to build up a picture of the wildlife on our campuses so please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you have spotted!
Read our new strategy that aims to enhance our campuses for biodiversity and for the people that use and enjoy our natural spaces.
We are looking for staff and students based at Medway to join our group of sustainability champions to help us with an important project!
