Green Fingers at Nizells Avenue
6th February 2012
Now that it’s a New Year, many of our children will have the opportunity to get their hands dirty and help with some planting in our vegetable patch.
Children have been planting carrots and salad onions, and then tomatoes, radishes and potatoes. Planting is an activity we carry on throughout the year, talking to all the children involved about growing and tending to the plants, and hopefully resulting in some produce to take home and try. We recently had a bumper crop of leeks and parsnips.
Any produce which doesn’t go too well is fed to Billy the Snail or becomes a composting activity for the children – so nothing’s wasted!
Donations of gardening equipment such as seeds or pots are always gratefully appreciated. We particularly need hand tools and grow bags.
