Here at Mount Pleasant Junior School we have started a major project of enhancing the grounds of the school. Part of this is creating a new Garden Gang to help assist with the design and upkeep of the school grounds.
Currently we have 48 pupils in Garden Gang, 12 children from each year group!
We already have five raised planting beds and we plan to have another three installed very soon.
“It is amazing how many of our children are already very knowledgeable of plants, as many of the children grow a range of plants at home in their garden.” – Leonie Emery, Site Manager and Garden Gang Leader.
This year we have entered into the RSH Campaign for Schools Gardening Competition. There are five levels and we have already reached Level 2, as well as this we have also entered the RHS Big Seed Sow, so watch this space…
Garden Gang are very busy planting flowers, herbs and vegetables for the school grounds. Click on the gallery below to see our progress.
