As the weather heats up across the UK our garden activity continues to develop at a rapid pace. Development of our food growing site at Drumchapel High continues to take shape with students planting corn, radishes, peas, strawberries, and blackberries in the raised beds. The peas were grown from seed by the group – revived from near death by Ally – and the students were pleased to finally be able to plant them outside.
The group at Lourdes Secondary are also continuing with their pea growing and have been preparing the raised beds for planting outside next week. The group undertook an exercise on the environment, thinking carefully about issues of rubbish and recycling. After a successful litter pick across the garden, students reused some of the rubbish that they found and turned these into bird feeders to place in the garden.
