3rd Royal Horticultural Society Partnership Day
Recently, some of our pupils pupils took part in a Royal Horticultural Society event, where the theme was; ‘Edible Leaves and Flowers’
They took part in a variety of activities, including making a number of different flavoured mint teas, including peppermint, spearmint, and pineapple mint to name just a few.
Pupils also learet how to take cuttings, and propagate plants, and even planted some seeds for blackcurrant bushes, nasturtiam seeds, chives, and some sunflowers in the eco garden plots.
A herb tower was also planted, and some sunflowers were planted around the playground, as part of the RHS ‘green up’ strategy.
After the college day had ended, our staff took part in a session in which they learned how to pot up mini edible alotments.
Everyone who took part in the event had an enjoyable day.
