This Is Our Jam is part of Growhampton, a food-focused sustainability programme delivered by Roehampton Students’ Union at the University of Roehampton. The team use campus grown fruit and vegetables turning them into ketchups, cordials and chutneys, and sell the preserves at a weekly market stall. This Is Our Jam also educate their fellow students about sustainable and healthy food by running enterprise and cooking classes on campus.

This spring they’ve been making wildly popular wild garlic pesto, raising money for fox-proofing the hen house, and started working on their scale-up business model. This is Our Jam has seen increased participation this term, but have found it challenging to keep students involved in the business side of the enterprise. They are currently developing their vision for the next academic year, with a focus on marketing and student retention.
