We’re all so proud of our Green Impact team for getting a Gold Award!
The Grantham Centre team is led by our Centre Administrator Jana Green. They had two projects, SHEFF-Yield and University Online Marketplace. Jana worked with Grantham Scholars from across disciplines, including: Manasi Mulay, Caterina Cosmopolis del Carpio, Mira Lieberman, Phebe Linette Bonilla Prado, Florentine Weber and Eliza Mary. Joining them were Elly and Esme who are also studying at TUoS.
SHEFF-Yield is a program to encourage people in Sheffield to grow their own food. In order to do this, the team have put on a series of webinars. Included so far have been webinars on hydroponics and organic gardening. Several Grantham Scholars and team members have taken part in the webinars, sharing their specialised knowledge with a wider audience.
If you want to come along and see a webinar, then look at the SHEFF-Yield website for more info.
