Gardening club 2018

 

The gardening club took a break over winter as it was too wet, cold and muddy to do anything. But now spring is here the gardening club has sprung back into action. We have already been busy planting seedlings.

 

Our aim this year is to plant fruit, vegetables, herbs, salads and flowers that attract bees, butterflies, moths and insects.

Our compost bin has been doing its job over winter and we are hoping for some good quality compost to use on our plots very soon. We also have a water butt to harvest rain water for our plants.

A Special Thank you

We have had a wonderful donation of Peas given to us by Mr and Mrs Winter who not only started the seeds for us but have made our life easier by planting them in ‘guttering’ so we only need to dig a trench and then just slide the peas out of the guttering directly into the trench! We will insert canes for the peas to grow up and cover them with mesh netting to stop the birds eating them.

Brilliant idea. Thank you.

 

Welcome to The gardening club, the club aims to take care of our school environment by growing our own fresh fruit and veg, creating a safe place for wildlife to grow, provide wildlife habitats and ensure our school environment is kept clean and tidy.

The group consists of 4 adults Mrs Haywood, Mrs Gold, Mrs Rudd and Mrs Gunner plus our wonderful enthusiastic key stage 2 children. 

 

 

 

The gardening club were delighted recently to be asked by The friends of the nook to paint bird boxes to be put up around the Nook nature reserve.

The children relished the challenge to paint 19 bird boxes in one hour!

How wonderful to support a community project and help provide nature with a home. We look forward to new guests taking up residence in the boxes next spring. Please have a look for them if you visit the Nook, its a lovely place and well worth a visit.
