Sustainable St Mary’s
The St Mary’s Allotment Project continues and with the tireless work of Mr Sabatino and the Year 3 planters as you can see the raised beds have been built, filled with high grade soil and now the planting has begun.
Already we have peas, runner beans, corn, cucumbers and strawberries growing. The strawberries have their own home in the brilliantly designed Fiatino tractor. There will be additions to the allotment as it is an on-going project.
We hope to introduce a small poly tunnel for getting the seedlings ready for next year, a water feature and some more benches and chairs so people can relax in the quiet environment.
As the children will be enjoying a hard earned break the allotment would need some tender loving care over summer. If there are any parents willing to drop in from time to time, when the school is open, to just do a spot of weeding or watering that would be fantastic. Of course you may receive payment in kind with some veg.
