It has been a busy year for the Gardening Club. We started off earlier in the year with daffodils which the pupils took home for Mother's Day, and we hope to repeat this again next Spring. As you can see from the selection of photos the raised beds are bursting with vegetables and fruit.
The club attendees enjoy preparing the beds, sowing the seeds and transplanting the seedlings. It is always amazing to return from the summer holiday break to find the vegetable beds have just exploded with an array of wonderful crops ripe for harvest!
This year we have grown a wide selection of fruit and vegetables, including carrots, cabbage, kale, runner beans, tomatoes and raspberries. We also grew potatoes, which were used by the Refectory for a Lower School Lunch, and giant pumpkins which decorated the Chapel for our Harvest Festival Service and will be used in our "House Halloween" carving assembly.
