Growing in the Community
We have set up a parents and pupils gardening group called, “Growing in the Community”. Our first meeting and growing session was on the very cold and snowy Friday 4th March.
With this group we aim to l promote healthy eating and to encourage parents to get outside and work with their children more. We want our gardening group to bring people together in a social activity. In the future we hope to combine our Bake Off group and we hope to use the Growing in the Community group to use their produce in their baking. We would also like to sell some of the produce to raise money for local charities.
Finally we want to offer enjoyment and pleasure to our parents, pupils and local residents.
At our first session we planted Red and Golden Onions, Peas, Broad Beans and Coriander in our fabulous polytunnel, which was funded by the WWF Green Ambassadors award money.
