Leeds Edible Campus

This Feed Leeds-led project is currently dormant because many of the participating parties have either stalled, ended or changed focus. The Beckett Pocket Beds have been removed. The University Sustainable Garden is no longer run by LUU as a major food provider (but watch this space for new developments soon). Bedford Fields continues to thrive.

Meanwhile, Leeds Beckett Landscape Architecture students have been developing ideas, plans and research for this project for many years. Some of the best schemes can be found on our Design Research page.
