Better Together

The begining of our gardening club

Every Wednesday a group of our children attend an after school gardening club designed to encourage a deeper understanding of nature and where our food comes from.  Each week we tend to our vegetable plot, flower bed, greenhouse plants and the wild life area.  So far we have been lucky with the weather and our garden has flourished!

It's great fun and we can't wait to be able to sample some of our home grown produce!
