Gardeners of the Galaxy

Categories: Parent's Information

Following the success of our ‘gardeners of the galaxy’ taking part in a competition at Hyde Hall in December, we were delighted to welcome staff from RHS Hyde Hall to William de Ferrers school on Wednesday last week. Aided by students from the gardening club, they spent the morning helping to transform our courtyard garden by weeding, tidying, planting herbs and pond plants. This is an on-going project to create an area of relaxation for students.
Thank you to Aidan Dowler, Kaylen Burton, Isobelle Brent, Amelia Dale, Charlotte Oschman, Harry Pember, Jake Trevallion,
Riley Price, Charlotte Jessop, Jasmine Lawrence, Ella Quinn and Sophie Varney for their hard work and to Mr Mason and Miss Wilkinson for their help in organising this event.
We are looking forward to welcoming back the RHS in the coming weeks to help with further planting, and thank them for their time and generous donations of plants.
The RHS have been so impressed with William de Ferrers School that they have asked us to take part a community gardens initiative next year.
We are looking for donations of vegetable plants, a water butt and garden furniture to help complete our garden project. If any parents or carers have any of these items that they are able to donate, please contact Miss Wilkinson swilkinson@wdf.school
