Hi everyone,

Our current garden group was very busy on Tuesday for our grow your own session with Tracey and Emily from Wigan and Leigh Homes.  Tracey and Emily kindly brought us in lots of plants and seeds to grow in our kitchen garden. 

We had to dig over the beds first, then we planted onions, broccoli, Cauliflower, carrots, beetroot, sprouts, potatoes, spring onion, strawberries, tomatoes and peppers, so hopefully we should have a bumper harvest this year and be able to pass on some of our produce to the School kitchen.  We also sowed some fennel, peas, and nasturtium seeds to grow in our new mini grow house.  As you can see from the photo’s below all the group worked very hard, well done everyone!

If you haven’t visited our Kitchen Garden for a while come and see how we are getting on- you’ll be surprised by the changes.

We have purchased a lovely planting scheme sign to help us remember when to sow and harvest our crops and also a ‘Welcome to our kitchen garden’ sign to go on the entrance gate so that everyone knows that this is the area we are growing fruit and veg.  We have also made a nice bird feeding station which is attracting lots of birds who are enjoying the food we have provided for them.

Hi everyone,

With the recent nice weather we’ve been able to get outside and make the most of sunshine by having our packed lunches outside on our new picnic benches which were one of our school council projects and were purchased by The Friends of St David’s.  The kitchen and welfare staff also kindly moved some of our dining tables outside to make room for everyone.  Thank you very much.  We had a lovely time as you can see, it was like a St David’s street party!
