New Gardening Club Social Opens in Teviot Underground
The Edinburgh University Allotment and Permaculture Society is opening a brand new weekly social in the Teviot Underground this Saturday.
Named “Horticulture,” the event aims to introduce students to a more genteel to enjoy their Saturday nights.
The event’s description reads, “For years now, Saturday nights for students in Edinburgh have been times of despair with a choice between cheesy music, or paying £5 for a single drink. All the while dancing next to some 40 year old sweaty man.”
The Society believes that gardening offers a uniquely different Saturday night experience to what is currently on offer.
Emily Bancroft, Allotment and Permaculture Society President, said, “Let’s face it, no one really likes or uses Teviot Underground anyway. Subterranean gardening will be a great way for people to let off steam after a hard week of lectures.
“Teviot is also a lot closer and nicer than King’s Buildings, where we currently have our socials.”
Briana Pegado, EUSA President, said, “This is exactly the kind of alternative entertainment that EUSA encourages.
“Nightclubs are such an abusive experience. What better than simply spending time with plants, who will never breach your safe space, because they physically cannot.”
