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:
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.
