Garden Club Award

Garden Club Award

To achieve this, classwork linked to activities in the school garden had to be submitted plus evidence of students working with a range of plants / crops in the garden and construction activities such as building raised beds and bug hotels, plus crop labelling and safe garden practice amongst other things.

The award also means we receive a voucher for a large vegetable garden of more than 200 plug plants.

The students responsible for achieving this are

– Sean Burchett
– Tom Baker
– Alex Wheeler
– Alex Foulkes
– Caprice Mead
– Craig Chandler
– Harvey Brown
– Kieran Sonier
– Lauren Reeks
– Natasha Pritchard

Thanks also to Sue Bunyan, whose garden skills have been essential.
