Autumn days bring time for lots of nature play, seed planting, harvesting, cooking and eating.
A great start to Garden Club this term & there is lots to be done to keep our garden looking good but also to take advantage of the best seasonal growing season Spring & Summer.
Classes are divided up into groups of 10 and given a group name MUSHROOMS, MANGOES, MINT, CARROTS, BEANS, STRAWBERRIES,
This week the chessboard lawn was aerated and received a good dose of water saving pellets, the frog bog was cleaned out & yes we have a FROG! and lots of little egg nests were found. Students went on Nature Hunts to get up close and personal with their garden and to learn as they foraged for items to stick on their bracelets. Garden beds were weeded, seeds were saved, seeds were planted and worm wee was fed to the garden beds. String lines were created to cut a level hedge out the front of the school. Peas were eaten off the vin, carrots were dug up, which is always fun - sometimes eaten sometimes not.
Green diaries are still on back order and we hoping they will arrive this week so that the kids can keep records of their findings, growings and planting.
