Gardening

We love Gardening at Ash Grange and encourage children from Nursery to Year 6 to get involved.  There are special roles for Year 6 as Head Gardeners and there is a club for all ages.  

 

Our amazing grounds include:

  • A wild area at the end of our field with long grass for the children and animals to enjoy.
  • An orchard with loads of fruit trees and bushes
  • Raised beds for fruit and vegetables
  • Composters
  • A nature area full of different habitats for animals to enjoy
  • A sensory garden for the children to enjoy when playing
  • Fruit and flower bushes throughout the grounds
  • Hedging corridors
  • Leaf pit
  • Log piles
  • Ponds
  • Planters
  • Water conservation

 

Out children grew plants from seed at home and at school, this year we grew loads of new flowers, fruit and vegetables, including potatoes and sweetcorn. We take part in competitions like Guildford in Bloom and take trips to local places to learn more and see other gardens.

 

If you are a keen or willing gardener and want to join in with our ventures, please get in touch.
