Our first ever after-school Gardening Club have just completed their second term of activities. The group have been working tirelessly to regenerate the Eco Garden and breath new life into it. The polytunnel has been recently recovered and this will hopefully lead to an increase in growth. Crab apples tress, strawberries, onion sets, potatoes and lettuce and much more are currently being nurtured.
Last week, one of our budding gardeners took some rhubarb home and along with the help of his family, created a fabulous crumble that went down a treat in school.
A huge thanks to Alison from Ring of Gullion and also Tí Chulainn who we work very closely with on a weekly basis. Their assistance is invaluable and this sense of community collaboration underpins what the whole Eco Schools programme is all about.
