Dragon Club: St George's News items

St George’s Community Garden Workshop, by Mrs Cameron-Ivanov

Date: 7th May 2022 @ 11:59am

This weekend we had a lovely morning establishing our school community garden. The weather was kind!

We were joined by parents, carers and children from year groups 2 and 3.

Tasks for the morning included, planting pollinators, making wigwams for our sweet peas and beans, digging out and replanting potatoes, building a bird bath, planting a variety of fruit and veg from strawberries to broccoli, courgette to rhubarb and lettuce to tomatoes.

We have also sown a variety of seeds, including carrots, beetroot, onion, spring onion, radish, cauliflower and kale.

Year 4 gardening club and top site dragon club will be maintaining the garden by making sure our plants are well fed and watered throughout the summer term.

We can’t wait to see how our garden develops and enjoy the fruits of our labour!
