Welcome to Gardening


The Cranbourne Gardening Group is run by Miss Blackburn (Learning Support Assistant/ELSA), and she is often ably assisted by Mr Cripps (Site Assistant) who kindly donates his time to support our school garden. The Gardening Group was established in 2018 with a grant of £500 and this year we have been joined by a new batch of keen Year 7 gardeners.

Since September, we have had four outdoor sessions of gardening in which we have spent time learning about the edible herbs in the Kitchen Garden, harvesting cucumbers, courgettes, tomatoes and potatoes from our greenhouse and measuring the sunflowers which have grown. We have also planted autumn flowers in the containers at the front of school and are now planning a Bug Hotel and some winter recipes to whip up using our vegetables. All the students are very keen to get the jobs done even in the wind and rain!
