Witton Gilbert Primary School

Gardening club

Gardening club is one of the most popular after-school activities our school has... Mrs Dubre, Mrs Ford and Mrs McPherson lead the club with help from some volunteers from our families and wider school community.  The pupils who come to gardening club help to make sure our school looks attractive by planting bulbs around school but they also tend to the school allotment; growing vegetables and fruits to use in our school cookery classes and to sell to our families to raise funds for new crops.  It is a very important job to do; we love our school grounds to look fantastic!  Read our blog below to stay up to date with our activities and events.

Gardeing club update - spring 2017

GardeningClub on: G-Club news....

Gardening club is back! This term’s gardening club will be better than it has ever has been before as we are concentrating on planting rhubarb and encouraging potato chitting.

Unfortunately last week’s weather set us back a little as we have needed to re-dig the gardens so we could plant; the soil was not in good condition after the snow. We’ll be sharing the produce with school and our club members when it grows. We’re also looking forward to the spring re-growth of the bulbs that previous years of gardening club members have planted.  The daffodils and snowdrops look beautiful when they have grown and really brighten up our environment.
