We are developing our school eco garden. First we had 3 new raised beds installed, then all the children planted herbs and vegetables. We had the most amazing pumpkins and marrows. Some unusual purple sprouts are growing now. Also the children grew their own potatoes and took them home to share with their families.
Everyone at the school is involved in our eco garden. In the summer every child got involved making a scarecrow to celebrate Henry VIII’s 500th centenary. The scarecrow was exhibited at Hampton Court Flower show. It was entitled ‘Henry and his Birds’. Now we have a new greenhouse and hope to plant seeds in the spring.
