GROWING OUR OWN AT OHS SUPPORT DEPARTMENT!

In October 2012 we took charge of a supersized poly tunnel which was erected in the grounds of Glencruitten Hostel. This was the first step in our plan to grow and sell produce to parents, staff and the hostel kitchen! In our Tech classes we have made six raised beds for the tunnel and plan to make more for outside. We have planted potatoes, onions, herbs and blackcurrants so far and have also been improving the hostel grounds by planting hedges and trees!

At the moment there are two groups using the polytunnel in a variety of classes.
We will need to raise money to continue the good work and have a few fundraising ideas in the pipeline.
