The children have decided that the land between Year 6 and the Dining room needed improving. The gardening club was duly formed, with eight volunteers from Year 5 and 6.
The idea is to create a sustainable garden and wildlife area. To this end, we are looking for any donations of plants or seeds which will return year after year. If you can help us with plants, seeds or gardening equipment, please see Mr. Hull in Year 6.
The garden is growing well now (July 2008) and many vegetables are almost ready for harvesting.
We have grown tomatoes, courgettes, potatoes, lettuce, carrots, butternut squash, pumpkins and rhubarb. Take a look at our most recent photos.
Our gardeners - Do they know how much work they have ahead of them?
The land has been photographed before we started and updates will be posted once visible improvements have been made. The money to fund the programme of improvements was raised during the non-uniform day to celebrate St. George's day. This gives us a budget of £178.60.
Check back to see how the garden is getting along.
