School Donation For Gardening Project

Date Published 28 April 2018

Supporting the local community
The S&L team have made it their mission this year to give something back to the community that they live and work in. Sue, Sara and Rob know how important education is especially when this is combined with the desire for learning about the environment and how to grow your own food and flowers.
With numerous reports showing how beneficial gardening is for our health physically and also for stress busting and mental health, it is vital that children learn how to reap these benefits for use throughout their life.
When the team heard that `Our Lady Of The Angels` primary school in Queensway, Torquay were raising the funds to develop a children`s garden, they felt they had to step up and offer a donation....they presented a cheque to Rebecca Kirby (middle in picture) - Chair of the PTA and Karen Curtis (right in picture) - PTA Volunteer, this week, to show their support in this venture.
The school aim to reach a target of £1500, so that their empty troughs can be abundant with vegetables, fruit and blooms!
The money is also needed to purchase and erect a garden shed suitable to store all the children`s gardening tools, to replace worn out fencing boards, to buy top soil to fill the troughs, seeds, hand tools, and to buy picket fencing to safely enclose a little more of the grounds. Each class will be given it`s own trough to plant out and care for.
