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. We also operate a Gardening Club, which is run by Miss Allen, and many enthusiastic children join her to help to look after the small garden area on a Friday afternoon after the school day finishes. Recently, the garden has been undergoing some renovation, as a pond was taken out in order to make space for a brand new shed. This is in order for there to 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 have also been given a “Wall You Can Eat” kit and plants by ISS who provide our school meals and some of the children have now planted within it which has been attached to the rear of the shed.

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

Also, many plants were sold at our Summer Fayre this year to eager parents, as these had all been grown by the children from seeds.
