News from the South Malling Garden
November and December were very busy months outside at South Malling. The children who brought in bulbs planted then in the raised beds and in some pots to add some colour and cheer us all up next spring.
A team of dedicated and enthusiastic children swept and collected leaves every lunchtime. They worked together really well as a team and made a huge difference to the garden area.
The pond area was made ready for the winter, 3 new beds were constructed and the entire garden was given a thorough tidy up with the help our amazing parent volunteers, Catherine, Jenny, Karen & Nev.
Along side Mrs Swan and Mrs Hunt they turned up three Saturday mornings in a row ,two of which were very wet indeed! Without their help it simply would not have been managalble –THANK YOU !
Mrs Swan will be planting garlic before Christmas and continuing small garden groups at lunchtimes in term 3. We also hope to organise another few Saturday working sessions early in term 4 to get the garden ready for gardening club. If you are interested in helping next year please let Mrs Hunt know.
