Gardening Club

Robert Browning’s gardening club was formed alongside Friend’s of Nursery Row. Funding was secured by the Friend’s of Nursery Row to employ a specialist practitioner to lead weekly sessions. One afternoon every week a group of 15 children leave the school in their wellies and head to the local park. Lessons include:

  • Seed bombs- planting seeds in clay and dispersing them throughout the park
  • Worm hotel – making a wormery within the park and observing the progress
  • Wreath and Christmas card making – collecting different types of leaves to make rubbings
  • Pruning – learning how to maintain trees and shrubs

Each term we invite parents and carers to take part in practical sessions with their children. We also usually run an afterschool gardening club for children with rather green fingers, some of the results can be seen around the school grounds.
