Get involved – STAG Students for Treborth Action Group


STAG is based at the university’s beautiful Treborth Botanic Garden, where we help with all aspects of the garden: planting, weeding, woodland maintenance and generally making the place even better. If you like getting your hands dirty whilst learning about plants and nature, STAG is right for you. When we’re not gardening we run trips to botanic gardens, forage for mushrooms, hunt for bats and much more. Visit us on Facebook or email us to get the latest!

HOG Soc Horticultural

Organic Garden Society

HOGsoc is a student-led community garden in the heart of Upper Bangor on Ffriddoedd Road. We grow organic produce to share amongst our members and enjoy at BBQs. Started in 2010 on land provided by the University, the society has transformed this unused space into a wonderful garden. We’ve already built raised beds, a patio, a shed and a wildlife area, but there’s a lot more to do!

So grab your wellies and come try out your green fingers, Sundays from 1pm.

BUFS Bangor University Farming Society

With weekly trips to Bangor University’s research farm at Henfaes, we are involved in the maintenance and general upkeep of the farm, whether that be achieved through weeding, pruning trees in the forest garden or taking cuttings from plants, ready to be re-potted and grown on.

And the good news for us students: we also have the facilities to grow our own food, ranging from strawberries, to peppers, to salad leaves and anything else we fancy growing! And to make it even better, all produce is shared out equally when harvested! (Who doesn’t like a bit of free food?!)

So, if you fancy getting your hands dirty keep an eye on this page for up and coming events!
