The log cabin has arrived

Thankyou to all the parents and pupils who cleared the ground for the log cabin. The cabin will provide us with the much needed learning space for when it is cold or raining outside.

Minnesota Visit

We had some great visitors who were as enthusiastic about the garden as we are. They came form Minnesota in the USA. We all worked with Jim Bliss RHS to plant some tomatoes for our greenhouse.

We had chance to share our knowledge with each other and swap tips for growing.
We have also been given a new apple tree to plant a special variety that grows in Minnesota.
