Wellbeing Garden - Join One of Our Planting Parties
A HUGE thank you to the parents, staff and students who have helped out so far as we transform a derelict area into our Flower the Youth wellbeing garden.
We held the first planting party earlier this month and you can see some pictures here, including Lilly, Year 10, and and Niamh, Year 7 (right), getting to grips with some Cyclamen
We have two raised beds for growing produce, borders to attract bees and butterflies, and a GREENHOUSE!
There are two more planting parties in November and December. The dates are:
- Friday 19th November - 2pm to 6pm
- Friday 3rd December - 2pm to 6pm
If you would like to register to do a couple of hours simply click HERE – it would be great to have a good turn out as there is lots more to do!
