Community Garden

At Greenfields we are lucky enough to have an abundance of many things...Amazing children...Wonderful staff...Hard working parents...and lots of GREEN SPACE! Therefore we are working on a project to use some of this space in a way that further increases our impact on our community. On this page, you will find updates about our Community Garden Project, Phase one of which started in May 2019, with the help of some children in Year 5 and 6, using materials donated by local businesses.

Throughout the project we will post information about our progress and seek out volunteers whenever we think we need them. More importantly, when we have made some progress towards Phase Two - Planting, we will be inviting all members of our community to get involved and benefit from the positive wellbeing that gardening brings! 

Phase one - Landscaping

Day One - Superstars from Year 5 and 6 have set about painting these pallets for our 'living fence'. What a great way to begin our project!

Update June 2019 - Over the next few weeks, we will be working hard to refurbish the allotment area and add some simple planting to our new 'living fence'. Then we are going to get the lawnmower out and start marking out some pathways around our new garden space. We've gratefully received a donation of paving stones recently. These will be painted up by some of the children, based on their own designs, then placed around specific areas of the site. Watch this page for more photos soon!
