After day one...
The first day of the Big Dig took place in May, with our staff, parents, pupils and past pupils coming together to create our Wellbeing Garden.
Despite 47mph winds and drizzle, our fabulous gardener Andrew directed the rogue group of demolition experts (not much gardening experience between us!) as we worked for four hours to demolish the overgrown site, trim back the buddleia and banish the brambles.
Dr Hay brought enough chocolate biscuits to keep spirits (& energy) high!
Before and after...
Here is one of the areas we cleared at the first Big Dig session... before and after. The brambles didn't stand a chance after our Big Dig team got going!
The garden is happening because a group of HAB girls has secured £1,500 from the Lord Mayor of London's City Pitch fund to create a garden and performance space. The space will contain a wellbeing area, a greenhouse so we can start a gardening club, and a performance area.
There are still two more Big Dig sessions. Simply Click HERE to sign up.
Friends of HAB raised additional funding for the garden through our HAB Winter Wonderland.
Hope to see you at the next Big Dig!
