The Green Club with Mrs Cardell, Mrs Watt, Mr Underwood & Mrs Fisher
The Green Club is the chance to grow your own, enjoy the sunshine (and rain), make friends and get fit. There will be the opportunity to cultivate vegetable plots, flower beds, herb gardens and fruit. We have lots of land and greenhouses available.
We are looking for girls who love different aspects of the outdoors – so in good weather, gardening, but also using green materials for plant arrangements, photographing things that we see in the landscape or the detail of plants we see growing and printing those photographs on bad- weather days.
There will be the opportunity to learn horticultural techniques, including crop rotation, pest control and composting, to gain the most from the soil. There will be a chance to set up a market stall and sell the produce. There may be the opportunity to invite speakers or visit garden centres or horticultural centres (e.g. Capel Manor).
