Girvan Community Garden visited Crosshill Primary School last week to help them towards achieving their Green Flag Award.
They were joined by eager pupils, teachers and volunteer helpers who did a fantastic job of creating an allotment space made from re-using old tyres. Everyone got the chance to plant beans, strawberry plants, salad crops, herbs , onions and rhubarb.
The community garden team also refreshed an existing border with new plants to attract more bees and butterflies. Primary 1 to 4 pupils all got to take home a mini composter that they made from reusing and recycling materials.
The nursery children helped to set up a wormery and we shared a story, learning about the important job that worms do for us. It was amazing what the children achieved in just two days. Thank you to all who were involved.
