Busy in the Garden

The children were busy in the school garden planting seedlings, weeding, composting and giving the garden a general clean up. The children were delighted to learn about companion planting, aerobic composting and slug defenses from Jessica and they were even more delighted to get stuck into the gardening – the weeds didn’t stand a chance!
