Green fingered successes

The value of outdoor learning and understanding more about the natural world around us are hugely important here at St John’s.

Gardening and growing are part of our curriculum and the school’s work in this has seen us achieve RHS certificates in Level 1, 2 and 3!

Along with the certificates we have received a calendar which sets out the best time to grow and harvest crops (we’ve been particularly successful with marrows!), an RHS book packed full of great gardening projects and a School’s Constant Garden from Rocket Gardens.

Rocket Gardens grow and send us a series of boxes full of young vegetable and fruit plants during school term times ready to help our veg patch “burst into life”.

Growing from these and from our other seedlings has seen a bumper crop of pumpkins, beans, chillis and tomatoes and our poly tunnel has been groaning at the seams!

Produce is available to buy at school reception.
