Our Teaching Assistant Mr Leach has been co-ordinating work in our garden/allotment space.  We currently have many vegetable plants growing, including broccoli, cauliflower, onion, potatoes, squashes, cabbage, lettuce and carrots.

 

Our first batch of chilies have been harvested and some brave staff and students have added them to their lunches produced by our on site Chef, Mr Rahim-Christensen.  Our Greenhouse Dome has been constructed and is being used.

 

Over the next few weeks Mr Leach will be working on creating a flower centre-piece where students will be able to sit and where all our flowers will be on display. We also plan to create a ‘flower tower’ - students have begun decorating plant pots (see above) and will be attaching them to the telephone pole on site ready to plant up.

 

A big thank you to all the students and staff who have helped on the allotment so far!
