Allen Edwards and the wiggly worms!

At Allen Edwards, we have been meeting once a week on Mondays at after school club to work in the Secret Garden and grow an array of flowers, vegetable and herbs. Not having the best weather in the world and some pesky foxes, has meant that some things haven’t been as successful as we hoped…

We are now up to our ears with salad leaves, potatoes, onions and a few tomato plants. Lots of herbs and peas are coming along too. The children work in two’s or threes and are keen gardeners and appreciate the small insects that we look at – wiggly worms and slimey snails mostly! They are most enthusiastic about watering the garden and are very gentle towards the plants. Hurray for the Allen Edwards young gardeners!
