School Garden Grand Opening

After much hard work throughout the year by our Eco Team with the support of students from The Bridge and peers in every year group, we held the grand opening of our school garden project, inviting in governors and staff as well as other special guests to see the work our pupils have done. 

Students have been carefully cultivating a wide array of produce including sweetcorn, lettuces, onions, carrots, beetroot, sprouts and potatoes, some of which have been taken home by pupils, with other vegetables being used in the school canteen.  

The pupils have created eight planting beds, a polytunnel to grow foods which prefer warmer conditions, planted fruit trees supplying cherries, pears, and apples, and cleared the old “fruit cage” which is home to blackberry and raspberry bushes. They have also been preparing the garden to welcome in wildlife such as mammal and bug hotels, insect hives and a wormery.
