This is Mrs Middleton.
She runs the Gardening club and looks after our allotment.
The school rent the allotment as part of our Food For Life partnership.
We are proud of the amazing space we have and the planting that is already in place.
The allotment is constantly under development; currently we have storage space for all the equipment needed, a greenhouse, a poly tunnel, compost bins and water storage areas, a bug hotel, fruit trees and raised bed planting.
All food grown on the allotment is used by the kitchen staff for our delicious school meals. Our next aim is to fundraise enough money to enable us to develop a pond area.
To provide the children, families and those responsible for their care living in and around the area, a better start in life.
We want to see all those that are involved in the project making healthy lifestyle choices – a healthy balanced diet, regular exercise and promoting community cohesion. All of this as they gain the knowledge needed to produce their crops and show respect for the outside environment.
In preparation for our working party meeting on Saturday 10th June we have been working hard over the half term break to clear some of the overgrowth with their strimmers. Many thanks to Mrs Jones and her family, Mrs Middleton & Bohan’s Grandpa Martin for freely giving your time to work hard in the hot sunny weather. It is much appreciated.
