Cutteslowe School creates and plants up Edible Cutteslowe bed

Cutteslowe Primary School has just completed building a raised bed which is situated at the school front gate.  The children have already started to plant a variety of fruit and vegetables, and will continue to add to this over the next few weeks.

All children from nursery through to Year 6 learn how to respect the environment around them through Forest School sessions, visits to the schools allotment and the Cutteslowe Horticultural Therapy and Garden Centre.  They explore and experience hands-on how to grow food and respectfully handle plants so that they are healthy for planting and harvesting.

A group of Year 4 children have become Edible Cutteslowe ambassadors, and seed kits are being made for children to take home to start planting up! Children will also be able to make a sign to put by the plants as they grow and are ready for harvesting. Way to go, Cutteslowe Primary School!
