Girvan Community Garden help Crosshill kids with Green Flag award

The next generation of gardeners at Crosshill Nursery and Primary get into the swing of things.

The next generation of gardeners at Crosshill Nursery and Primary get into the swing of things.

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.
