Eco Garden

30.04.19 Gardening club.

Today was our first gardening club session!

Our small group of Year 5 and Year 6 children arrived with so much enthusiasm and determination!

We begun by taking our time to look around the garden before the children started thinking about their ideas and drawing sketches of what the garden could look like.

The children had so many fantastic ideas and couldn't wait to get stuck in! We even had some donations from home to get the garden started - we are really grateful for this support.

We will now start to think about how we can put those plans into action and begin to prepare the garden for lots of exciting things!

More updates to follow!



Eco garden development

We have been lucky enough to have volunteers into our school from Ford Motor Company to assist us in the development of our eco garden.

The photos below show the eco garden before and after the initial clear out. Much of the garden was overgrown and the pathways throughout the area were unclear.

After a long and hard day’s work, our volunteers managed to cut back a lot of the overgrown trees and plants, clear the pathways and prepare areas which can soon be used for growing plants and vegetables.

We would like to once again thank all who joined us from Ford Motor Company for helping us to really kick start the development of the area! Further updates to come…
