Help St Joseph’s Primary with their school garden

St Joseph’s Primary are in the process of setting up a school garden using some funding we received from the Food for Thought Project.  Our children have been very ambitious in their ideas and we realised we would require some more help to enable them to realise their dreams.

Young Enterprise Scotland contacted us with a fantastic opportunity which would be beneficial for both their Social Enterprise and St Joseph’s School.

They have applied for some money, from the Aviva Community Fund, to give young people on their Landscaping Pathway programmes the opportunity to gain valuable work experience by creating new community gardens across East Renfrewshire. This will give disengaged young people the opportunity to build their skills and confidence by making practical improvements to their local communities. They have offered to include the garden at St Joseph’s Primary School as one of these, meaning that they could use some of the funding received to develop an Eco garden area in our playground.

To maximise the chances of receiving the funding Young Enterprise Scotland must receive as many online votes as possible to become finalists.

We would really appreciate your help in maximising our chances.

Please find below the link for voting.

This link should take you directly to the project, however if it doesn’t you can search for the Young Enterprise Scotland project.

To vote you need to register for an account (only takes a couple of minutes) and then you can vote up to 10 times.

The deadline for voting is the 18th November.

Kind regards
