Today we have been preparing the raised beds so that more vegetables can be planted in Spring.
We got new, rich soil from the Leaf Composter. We pulled and dug out out weeds - some of them had really long roots. The old soil is like clay but the new soil is bright is alive. It is full of nutrients.
Here are some quotes from the pupils taking part:
"I love doing this because it's helping nature. We did a good job today." Azaan 6RJ
"It helps the plants and makes our school look better." Harris 6RJ
"I enjoyed today because we are helping. I feel happy because I like being outside even though it's cold. We haven't felt cold because we have been working hard." Isma 6RJ
The image below will show what the raised bed looked like before:
Now the next image shows how the raised bed looked after all of the hard work that was done by the Eco Peer Educators
