Youngsters at Embsay Primary School enjoy the seeds of success
8:00am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
Young gardeners at Embsay Primary School have been reaping the rewards of their hard work.
Last year they won a £6,000 Awards for All grant to spruce up the school grounds with the help of the village’s horticultural society.
“They have established a really lovely wildlife area ,” said headteacher Judith Holliday.
“They also have a potting shed, raised beds for flowers and vegetables and have transformed the grounds with hanging baskets and tubs.”
And they scooped several prizes at the local horticultural show.
“The children love being outdoors and understand a lot more about growing fruit and vegetables,” added Mrs Holliday.
The gardening project will continue during the current school year, with a weekly visit from a member of the horticultural society.
