Official Garden Opening!

On 28th June The Major of Rushmoor officially opened our Students’ Gardening Project. The project began in October 2016 and was sponsored very generously by the Farnborough Airport Community Environmental Fund through Rushmoor Borough Council.


Initially the garden space was an unloved rectangle of grass with a shed in the corner. Since then the space has been developed for counselling spaces, as well as raised beds where students have planted fruit and vegetables for the second year in a row. We are experimenting this year with sweetcorn and peas and are continuing with the success of carrots, tomatoes, raspberries, rhubarb and strawberries. We also have two herb troughs this year too.


Mrs Woodhams would like to say a big thank you to the site team for the wonderful work in building the gazebo, laying the patio and putting in the pond.


Thank you also to the wonderful students who have helped make this possible and turned up every week, even to weed and fill the bird feeders.

With lots of watering, we are all looking forward to a bumper harvest!
