The Community Garden project aims to provide a welcome green space for the community whilst improving health, wellbeing and educational opportunities. We plan to create a wellbeing garden that can be used by groups and individuals within the local area as well as the school community.
The garden will have several different areas and uses; a growing area for outdoor learning to teach children about nature and where our food comes from, a mindful/wellbeing area for some quiet space after the pandemic, a hive of activity for nature to flourish and to encourage wildlife into the garden, including a bug hotel. We will also have a picnic and wildflower area for families to come together. Within the garden area we will have a memorial for Louis, who was a pupil at the school.
We have some dedicated volunteers who have been clearing the site and getting it ready for the Autumn and the new growing season beyond. What we need now is to raise some funds for exterior paint, fencing and tools to help get us started.
Thank you so much for donations made so far! If you would like to volunteer to help or to donate plants or seeds please get in touch via the Facebook page.
