Our Story So Far…
We will be growing and eating our own food.
The children enjoyed planting vegetable seeds in the veggie garden and fruit trees in recycled tyres. They learnt about the process of composting and how to care for a worm farm. It was so funny watching them hold a worm in their hands as they wriggled about. The children suggested that we make a scarecrow to keep the birds from eating the plants. So they made a boy scarecrow from recycled newspaper, shopping bags and clothing. Once the scarecrow was added to the garden the children wanted to make a girl scarecrow so they could be friends.
