Years: All

Times: Monday Lunchtime 12:00 to 12:45 (From September to end of October, then February to July)

Limited to 15 children

We have  nine raised beds in the school grounds, a shed for keeping tools etc and are surrounded by apple trees. The children help keep the said beds in tip top condition - weeding, digging and planting and caring for crops. We plant broad beans, swiss chard and red onions which we grow over winter, ready for Spring. In Spring, we also grow carrots, potatoes, peas, runner beans, a salad crop ie leaves or lettuce, beetroot and cabbage. Once their crops have come to fruition the children take the produce home.

Donations of seeds full or part packets are most welcome. If you are a parent/carer and would like to help, please contact the office team on 01904 551630.
