Welcome to SGFS Allotment Club page!
At SGFS we have a wonderful new allotment area at the back of the school. In Allotment Club we learn lots about how to grow different plants and vegetables and throughout the year we look after them and help them to grow. We intend to sow, grow, eat and sell the produce that we produce.
Mrs McNally runs the allotment club with Mrs Salter, a volunteer, every Thursday after school and all keen green-fingered children from Year 2 and Year 4 come along on a rota basis to help. Each year group also has their own planting jobs so the area will be very busy with lots of little green fingers!
April 2022We are currently preparing the raised bed for new compost and painting the fences and planters. We are raking and hoeing the ground to ensure that the earth is ready for planting our range of vegetables in the new term. We have also created a bug hotel using old pallets we found in the allotment area and will also use them to create wall planters and tool storage.
