This afternoon Mr. Bowes led the first of a series of short 'workday' sessions to bring the garden at the rear of the School Hall and kitchen back into use. The intention is, over this autumn/winter, to clear a couple of overgrown areas and create some raised beds so that, next Spring, the children can start to grow vegetables which they will eventually be able to eat, and by doing this make the important link between planting seeds, nurturing young plants to maturity and harvesting produce grown.
|Before . . .|
|. . . and after a couple of hours' hard labour - but there's plenty more to do yet!|
We made significant progress on clearing the site, but there is plenty more to do before the site will ready for the children!
Mr. Bowes will soon sending a parentmail message setting up a second session to take the project forward and we need volunteers.
We know there are keen gardeners amongst you, but you don't have to be a gardener to help out! So look out for Mr. Bowes' message, 'sign-up' and get the date in your diary!
