St Catherine’s Gardening Club

In the spirit of  numerous initiatives to encourage children to eat healthily, enjoy growing their own vegetables, fruit and flowers and having a greater awareness and understanding of nature, Bletchingley in Bloom are joining with St. Catherine’s School to restart the Gardening Club in January 2009.    Preparations began last Saturday when, in the wind and rain, a few stalwart parents, children, ‘In Bloomers’ and a noble teacher re-dug the potager beds in the previously dedicated garden area.  Compost was incorporated and the many worms were invited to do their bit!

The ‘In Bloomers’ have also cleared a woodland glade of nettles within the school grounds and planted snowdrops and bluebells in their place.  It is hoped that they will create a welcome sight in Spring to children and parents alike, as they walk along the back path into school.
