At Ricard's Lodge School there is a school gardening club and edibles plot. The girls have been growing all their edibles from seed and its proving quite popular. They started their efforts back in March and its really starting to look like something special now.
The garden is looked after by the girls in Year 7 and volunteers which include myself, Joyce, Juliet, Belinda and Jill.
It is really starting to come together and this week we harvested our first crop - lovely lettuces!
I came with sunflowers, Belinda came with worm feed from her home wormery to feed the crops, Juliet and Jill brought support canes and Jill came armed with some knee pads for some speedy weeding.

Can't wait til the next gardening club!
