Gardening Club

Welcome to Soil & Seeds
 
'Soil & Seeds' have been working hard to earn the RHS School Gardening Awards. We have already been awarded level 1 & 2 (the certificates are proudly displayed in the reception area) out of the possible 5 levels and we are currently working towards level 3. To achieve level 3 we need to; encourage wildlife to the garden, grow simple fruits, vegetables and flowers, re-use many things and show an understanding of composting. The young gardeners have been thinking about the birds during the recent cold weeks, by making some multi seed bars. 
 
I am very pleased to report that the Woodside Junior gardening club, now named 'Soil & Seeds' is going from strength to strength.
 
During the academic year between September 2017 to July 2018, we have grown from seed, red onions, beetroots, radishes, broad beans, peas and a variety of herbs to be used during cooking sessions in school. 
 
We also wanted to attract some more wildlife to the school garden and so the gardeners cleared a permanent raised bed of weeds and planted a range of wonderful wild flower seeds, that included poppies, camomile  and much more.
 
The gardeners are watering daily in the hope that this beautiful sunshine allows for the seeds to germinate and grow into a stunning flower bed. What this space. 
 
A huge THANK YOU to all the Soil & Seed gardeners who have participated this year in Woodside's gardening club, especially those who have been helping since gardening club began x
