Let the Forest Garden grow
Abbott Primary school is getting very excited about their new grounds vision: they are going to grow a forest garden, put in raised beds and create a wild area. So they put on a community event and lots of parents, pupils and staff came along.
Every class was given responsibility to produce information, pictures and artwork to represent the different aspects of what would make up their new garden, from flowers and trees, to fruits and herbs, and not missing out those delicious plates of vegetables! The Eco team, with help from their class mates, ran the stalls and introduced visitors to the benefits and uses of their theme. They then asked them to taste a range of foodstuffs that will eventually be growing in the garden. There were hazelnuts and sweet chestnuts, blackberries and raspberries, jams and spreads, sticks and dips, teas and mint mojito!
Well done everyone!
