School Garden

We have been very busy in our gorgeous school garden, which provides each class with their own two ‘plots' where they are able to grow fruit, vegetables and herbs –providing opportunities for learning about where food comes from, healthy eating and cooking healthy foods. Things are starting to grow and our greenhouse is full of seedlings that we have nurtured and will be planting into the raised beds soon. We are involving the wider community in the maintenance and development of our garden and enjoyed a visit from the Potterspury Gardening Club.  Here are some photos of our 'green fingered' projects:
