West Walker Primary Kitchen garden
Project Category: School
The Staff and children at West Walker Primary school are beginning to transform their overgrown school garden. In the last six months, two large skips have been filled with weeds, broken trenches, plant pots and old tyres. This work would not have been possible without the help of West Walker Cadets who have volunteered after school as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award.
The grant that we received from Greggs has bought essential new tools and equipment, wood, shingle and a weed controlling membrane.
We have also received some fantastic wooden crates which were donated by Travis Perkins. These are going to be used as trenches in which we will plant vegetables.
The school has also enlisted the help of Food Nation who are a local community project. They will work with a group of children giving them the help and knowledge they need to know what vegetables to grow and how to look after them .
The school has long term plans to produce enough vegetables so that they can be used in cookery lessons and help subsidise school lunches.
During the next few weeks the children will be planting onions and garlic.
