School Garden

At Meon Junior School we have a small corner of ground just next to the main school building, which we have been developing and making into areas to grow vegetables and flowers. Miss Allen, and many enthusiastic children join her to help to look after the small garden area and playground containers. In previous years, the garden had been undergoing some renovation, as a pond was taken out in order to make space for a brand new shed. This was added so that there will be a safe place for seedlings to be grown and equipment for the children stored. Additionally, there has been some decking added to make access to the garden area easier and more room for the plants. As wildlife conservation is a priority too, a bee house is sited in the garden in order to give shelter to various kinds of bees and somewhere to shelter during winter.

We were also given a “Wall You Can Eat” kit and plants by ISS who provide our school meals and some of the children have used it to put plants into it and it has been attached to the rear of the garden shed.

The garden has produced many vegetables over time, and these have been  frozen by Ms Allen and they have been used to make sauces etc during past Cookery sessions.
