About community gardening
The funding for this project has given us the opportunity to buy a polytunnel and to develop a range of gardens. Our intention is to grow plants for food and as craft materials and also to incorporate gardening into schemes of work within the curriculum. We currently have plans for a Second World War 'dig for victory' garden, an explorer’s garden (plants brought back to England from early exploration), a weaver’s garden and a foraging garden. We will also be exploring water conservation and other sustainability issues.
