For the past two Fridays there has been lots of activity preparing the JBS garden. It can be found in the Grade 1 outside eating area.
Initially the weeds seemed to have taken over but after several hour of back breaking work from Secondary students , parents and staff we now have the area ready for the next stage.
School maintenance are doing much needed work to the water system and then we plan to build raised vegetable beds.
Our aim is to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers. The vegetables and herbs we will serve in the canteen. The flowers will be used around the school.
The JBS vegetable garden will be used as a ECA for students to learn about growing plants and maintaining a garden.
Simon from the canteen has already kindly offered to buy the soil.We have been very fortunate that the PFA are supporting this project but would like to ask for parents help to make this happens. We are looking to the next part which involves the building of the raised beds. If you have any experience or contacts who could help in any way please contact myself. We hope to have the raised beds built by the summer to begin sowing seeds and planting ASAP when school returns in September.
