MaR­I­aNNE all­port (9) and Demi Spring (10) wrote about the work their club does, in­clud­ing plant­ing veg­eta­bles and flow­ers. They also warned of the po­ten­tial dangers to be faced when be­ing green...

“Ev­ery Thurs­day, af­ter school, you can see us and the gar­den­ing club get­ting our wellies muddy. We plant var­i­ous veg­eta­bles and flow­ers in­clud­ing toma­toes, cress, marigolds and pota­toes.

“Mrs Bai­ley, our Year 5 teacher, helps 12 chil­dren dig, seed and wa­ter plants which we can then take home to look af­ter.

“Gar­den­ing club can be lots of fun, but you have to be care­ful.

“Once a girl tripped over her own feet and ended up on the floor in a muddy pud­dle. Whoops! Sting­ing net­tles can also be trou­ble­some, as one Year 6 found out!

“Gar­den­ing club teaches us to be re­spon­si­ble to­wards na­ture and the en­vi­ron­ment around us. It also shows us how to take pride in the things that we do.

“It is a great feel­ing to see the seeds and the bulbs we have planted grow into beau­ti­ful flow­ers and eat the won­der­ful veg­eta­bles we have grown.

“If you haven’t al­ready, join or cre­ate a gar­den­ing club and see how much fun you and your friends can have.”
