Over the last month we have been extremely busy in our school garden. We have had lots of jobs to do in the garden over the hot summer months and also now as we are approaching the cooler autumn months . A team of keen gardeners regularly come out during their lunchtimes to water, weed and harvest our produce. The more we are out in the garden , the more children we see getting involved who want to be a part of it all!
During Summer we were very thankful for the rainwater tanks as these were vital when our area went on water restrictions. This meant we could keep our garden going during our long hot summer. It also reminded us all how precious our water is and how we need to look after it carefully.
Recently we have had lots of fun planting flowers and making bird feeders. We want to attract more nature, especially birdlife to our school so we can observe them and bees so they can pollinate our plants. We also thought that as it gets colder it will get harder for birds to find food!
