Towards the end of autumn, staff and students at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) came together for a ‘Blooming Marvellous’ afternoon of green-fingered fun.
Devised in partnership between BGU’s CELT and Chaplaincy teams the ‘Blooming Marvellous’ event encouraged the BGU community to celebrate positive change and growth by providing them with the opportunity to plant bulbs in the University’s Peace Garden.
With spring in full swing and summer around the corner the Peace Garden has now burst into life, becoming an oasis of colour in the heart of campus, and the patient planters can now see the results of their efforts.
Claire Thomson, Head of the Centre for Enhancement in Learning and Teaching (CELT), was delighted for everyone involved that their hard work was now providing such a positive environment for the whole university:
“Not only have our staff and students transformed the Peace Garden into a beautiful and tranquil place to relax, they have also created a symbol of their own growth, transition, and hope. Hopefully now, whenever they’re looking for that extra little push, they’ll be able to look on this gorgeous garden to feel inspired.”
