What is the Edible Garden Project?
We have been given the opportunity to develop our own creative planting scheme for edible plants. Edible plants are plants within the vegetable or fruit kingdom that grow naturally to produce food for consumption.
What does this project involve?
Classes have been given seeds to initially sow in the classroom. They are currently growing into shoots and there have been many success stories. These seedlings will eventually be transferred into outdoor planters. Staff and children will use the school grounds and edible plants for continuous learning throughout the year. Take a look at the seedling growth of the classes below.
What is the purpose of this project?
As a school we take great pride to inspire the learners in our school. We believe children can reach their potential by encouraging independence and curiosity. This project works to achieve this. Children throughout the school will develop their science knowledge whilst promoting the growth of much more. Gardening can positively impact the children’s mindset as they will develop their communication and team building skills. This project will also encourage the awareness of healthy eating and children will have a greater depth of understanding with regards to where food comes from.
