How can you Help?

Pots need to be cleaned and filled with soil ready for planting. It helps if all the preparation is done before the children attend and they can then focus on enjoying the activity and learning about the vegetables or flowers they are planting.

There are lots of jobs that do not require any gardening experience just enthusiasm!

* Weeding the various borders around the school.

* Preparing pots for planting.

* Preparing planting equipment for children-gloves, aprons, trowels, compost.

* Making aprons!

* Planting seeds with the children.

* Preparing garden labels for the children write on.

* Painting benches and planters.

* Preparing pots for planting seeds and bulbs with the children.

All volunteers will be subject to the CRB checking.


How does gardening link in with the school curriculum?

Every subject in the curriculum can be taught through gardening. Growing plants can provide practical data for maths, real reasons for writing letters or keeping diaries to develop language skills, and inspiration for creative writing and art.
For further information see the RHS website.


Can’t volunteer time but would like to help?

There are certain things we need such as kids gardening gloves, aprons, trowels, fresh compost. Ideas are also very welcome!
Can I donate seeds, bulbs, plants or trees?
Yes, But we need to check that they are suitable for a children’s garden and a school environment. Just ask us!
