For some time now, I have been very keen on the children at Cockenzie Primary School and Nursery involved in growing their own food. We have fantastic resources in the Outdoor Classroom, poly tunnel and raised beds in the garden.
Covid -19 has delayed plans to start utilising these resources but with mitigations lessened and spring in the air, I have been involved with members of the community regarding involving the children in planting and growing.
So, I am sending out a plea for donations for seeds, propagator and any spare bags of compost that you may have – lettuce, radish, spring onion, beetroot, peas, French beans, carrots, courgettes, onion, shallots, pumpkin, tomato, peppers, cucumber, leeks, cabbage.
Perhaps grandparents, other family members have some seeds too so please share this with them too. Any donations can be dropped in the garden donation box in the foyer or your child could bring in any donations and give to their teacher.
We hope that this will be the start of a flourishing garden where we grow lots of different food to eat.
