“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.”
