Bingley Grammar School

Forgotten Greenhouse saved!

At the end of March a group of our students identified a 'lost space' within our school grounds and have worked hard to prepare it for spring with Mr Hollingworth!

The students cleared the clutter and cleaned the greenhouse and surrounding space. After 6 weeks of hard work the area is now ready to use in the coming summer months.

The students and staff have been battling against mouldy soil and according to Mr Hollingworth "spiders with biceps bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger and the most unpleasant smells that would trouble any nose!" 

The students have really rolled their sleeves up and got stuck in and it has been great to see them enjoying themselves whilst doing something worthwhile.

Students and staff have been asking for donations of seeds, cuttings and equipment and the results are fantastic - we now have all sorts of fruit and vegetables planted such as: potatoes, peas, broad beans, strawberries, radish, cucumber, salad, cress, chives, coriander, basil, beetroot, spring onion, snap peas, leek, peppers, blueberry and a range of various flowers. 

Well done to all those who have been involved in breathing new life into a once unloved area of our site - we look forward to sampling some of your produce!
