Since the Skills Academy has been so busy with the allotment, a lot has got done! The beds are filled, we have peas, potatoes and squash planted and more potatoes to be put in beds. Also thank you to the lady in the plot across from us (I think its plot 19?) who helped fill our raised beds full of soil – toiling work in the hot weather!
The Three Towns growers held a tree planting day on Saturday to plant all 420 trees given to them by the Woodland Trust. the trees planted included dogrose, hazel, crab apple, blackthorn and elder. We also finished putting the tarpaulin down on our plot, so we’re ready for our raised beds to be built!
We are looking for pupils who have an interest in H.E. and eco issues to join our food for life group, an initiative set up by the soil association to combat food waste and promote a culture of loving food. If you are a senior school pupil and are taking H.E. we would love to have you. If interested speak to Ms. Devlin in H.E.
