For some time now, we have been feeding our food composter with left over fruit and vegetables from the University’s Food Court. Earlier this summer, the first batch of compost was declared ready to use. The bin was cracked open with great ceremony, and the precious result of our labours was extracted.
On 5th September the University’s heritage hops were harvested to make the new Green Hop Ale in partnership with the Canterbury Brewers and Distillers, based at the Foundry Brewpub.
If nine months ago someone would have told that I would be working in something I love, that is designing, in a complete different language, and far from home, probably I would have thought that it was a joke. My name is Andrea and I am an Erasmus student from Spain, who worked at the Green Office designing the new label for the University ale in partnership with Canterbury Brewers and Distillers.
The Canterbury Brewers and Distillers, based at the Foundry Brewpub, have worked closely with the University since 2014, being an essential and integral partner in the production of the University Heritage Green Hop Ale.
