Developing the Community Allotment and opportunities for Gardening at Moston Fields
We are lucky to have Jo Fallows, the Outdoor Lady, working with us on developing opportunities for children to grow and learn about sustainable gardening. With Mr Campbell, we have a dynamite team who are literally transforming our allotment and field.
Look at our plans!
Message from Jo
Over the next year, we are going to be developing out outdoor spaces around our school, to help to improve our health and well-being for our whole school community.
We are renovating the Community Garden as an Orchard, the school will be growing in raised beds on the fields and enabling part of the school grounds to become more ‘woody’ for Forest School fun.
We would love you to be part of our ‘growing ‘ journey.
To do this we need your help and support. No experience is necessary. We are looking for skills & expertise, need extra hands and enthusiasm or just families who want to learn about growing their own food. We will be; weeding, planting, compost-making, pruning, creating signage and laying bark paths.
On Thursdays after school we are holding two ‘Drop-In’ sessions this half term, where you can find out more about ‘Growing Together’ @ Mostonfields.
