Snitterfield School Gardening Club is run on Tuesday lunchtimes by volunteers. We encourage the children to learn about nature, how to grow vegetables, fruit and flowers and have a lot of fun whilst doing so. The best part of the sessions for most of us is digging the soil and finding worms and other mini beasts.
We are very fortunate to have a lovely wildlife area and pond which garden club help to maintain and over the years we have also planted many trees supplied by The Woodland Trust.
Each year we take part in the Potato Council’s ‘Grow Your Own Potatoes’ scheme for schools and this year we are lucky enough to have potatoes growing for each class – I wonder which class will have the largest crop when we dig them up?
If you would like to get involved with the garden club please contact Mrs Hollowell in the school office. Volunteers are very welcome and the more help we have, the more the children learn whilst having fun, each week.
