Growing for the Future

Growing your own

View (Glynneath) Limited, working in partnership with a local nursery school to create a community allotment with children, parents, teachers and volunteers preparing the land, constructing raised beds and a polytunnel in which to plant fruit and vegetables.

Now, more than ever, children and parents need to learn about ‘growing your own’ and recycling, and this project will encourage them to become inspired and gain enough confidence in an informal, unpressurised setting, to get involved in horticultural activities so that the allotment becomes sustainable but also so they can take their newly learned skills to their own back gardens.

The aim is to utilise an unused area within the school grounds to support the growth of local produce and provide a sustainable source of healthy food and facilitate a potential ‘small enterprise’ for the school, with a focus on recycling and reusing to reduce waste.  In addition, the school will be provided with information packs about maintaining and developing the area.  The packs will include lesson plans for ongoing learning delivery within the school.
